An Introduction to Operation and Maintenance of Auxiliary Power Systems

COURSE NO: D03-004
PDH CREDIT: 3
An Introduction to Operation and Maintenance of Auxiliary Power Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides technical guidance and design requirements for the operation and maintenance of auxiliary electric power systems.

 

Auxiliary power systems are used on engines or prime movers that convert hydraulic, chemical or thermal energy to mechanical energy with the output being either straight-line or rotary motion. Auxiliary power systems are commonly found in industrial plants or on large aircraft, naval ships and large land vehicles. They are also installed on some diesel locomotives, allowing the prime mover to be shut down during extended idle periods, while providing power and heat to maintain air pressure and to keep the batteries charged and the engine coolant water from freezing.

 

This 3 PDH online course is intended for electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, plant operators, construction managers and other technical personnel seeking an introduction to the operation and maintenance of auxiliary electric power generating plants.
