COURSE NO: M04-041
PDH CREDIT: 4
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Funadamentals of Gas Turbine Engines (GTEs)
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course introduces the history and development of gas turbine engines (GTEs).

 

This course will help you become familiar with the basic concepts used by GTE designers, follow discussions of how the Brayton cycle describes the thermodynamic processes in a GTE, and learn how various conditions and design limitations affect GTE performance. This course also discusses how a GTE develops and uses hot gases under pressure.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to engineers, designers, manufacturers and anyone who wants to gain an understanding of the basics of gas turbine engines. After completing the course, you should have the basic knowledge to be able to describe the principal components of GTEs and their construction, the GTE auxiliary systems, and also be familiar with the nomenclature related to GTEs and GTE technology.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the principles and basic concepts of a GTE
  • Understanding how the Brayton cycle describes the thermodynamic processes in a GTE
  • Learning how various conditions and design limitations affect GTE performance
  • Understanding how a GTE develops and uses hot gases under pressure
