COURSE TITLE: An Introduction to Boiler Control Systems
COURSE NO: E03-017
An Introduction to Boiler Control Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to criteria for the design of heating plant instrumentation including selection, application and design of pneumatic, analog and digital control systems for steam boilers. A heating plant may contain one or more boilers.  The plant may be an individual plant serving a single building or a compact group of buildings, or a central plant serving many buildings and facilities through an extensive distribution system.

 

The heating plant instrumentation discussed is, in general, for a saturated steam power boiler heating plant. The information provided may also be applicable to Low, Medium, and High Temperature Hot Water heating plants, but does not cover all of the requirements of those plants, such as control of water pressurization and circulation systems. The information may also be applicable to superheated-steam power plants, but does not cover the all of the requirements of those plants, such as steam extraction, reheating, steam turbine control, and cooling water controls.

 

This 3 PDH online course is intended for mechanical and electrical engineers and other design and construction professionals wanting to learn the fundamentals of heating, high pressure and power boiler control systems.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Learning about heating, high pressure and power boiler controls
  • Learning how to choose the type of control that will do the job most economically over the lifetime of the equipment
  • Learning how to assure compatibility with controls used in an existing plant, ease of operation and maintenance, and plant personnel familiarity and training

COURSE TITLE: An Introduction to High Temperature Water Heating Plants
COURSE NO: M04-030
An Introduction to High Temperature Water Heating Plants
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course will introduce you to systems, equipment and design guidelines for high temperature water (HTW) heating plants.

 

HTW systems are used for heating multi-building facilities such as campuses and industrial and commercial activities. The advantage HTW systems have over steam heating systems is that the pressurized water in HTW systems has a much greater thermal storage capacity, resulting in smaller pipe and pump sizes. In this course you will learn about the different types of HTW systems, distribution schematics, hot water generators, pressurization methods, expansion vessels, pumps and controls.

 

This 4 PDH online course is intended for mechanical, industrial and plant engineers, as well as, maintenance personnel and construction professionals who are involved in the planning, design and construction of high temperature water heating plants.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Learning about the temperature and pressure parameters for high, medium and low temperature HTW systems
  • Learning about the single pump and double pump forced circulation HTW system with steam pressurization and expansion vessel
  • Learning about the single pump and double pump forced circulation HTW system with inert gas pressurization and expansion vessel
  • Understanding the recommended water velocities for HTW systems
  • Learning about the direct-supply, single-circuit, radial and reverse return distribution systems
  • Learning about the one-pipe loop-main distribution system
  • Learning about the features and functions of hot water generators
  • Learning about the saturated steam pressurization method
  • Learning about the inert gas pressurization method
  • Learning about the six pressurization methods that are generally not recommended
  • Understanding the advantages and disadvantages of steam pressurization and inert gas pressurization
  • Learning how to size expansion vessels
  • Understanding the design criteria for steam and inert gas pressurized systems
  • Learning about the types of pumps used in HTW systems
  • Learning about system controls
