This seminar will cover all aspects of gas turbines and co-generation plants. This seminar will cover in detail all the components of these types of plants such as: compressors, combustors, gas turbines, heat recovery steam generators, lubricating systems, instrumentation, control systems, transformers, and generators. The design, selection considerations, operation, maintenance, pay-back period, economics of gas turbines and co-generation plants, as well as, emission limits, reliability, monitoring and governing systems are also covered in detail. This seminar will also provide up-dated information in respect to all the significant improvements that have been made to gas turbines and co-generation plants during the last two decades.
This seminar will illustrate through sophisticated computer simulation how gas turbines and co-generation plants perform under steady-state and transient conditions. In addition, the delegates will learn how to use the computer simulation program which provides the following benefits:
- Allow the operator to extend the gas turbine operating period by avoiding unnecessary outages and maintenance activities.
- Determination of essential gas turbine maintenance activities to reduce the duration of outages.
- Profit optimization of gas turbines and co-generation plants.
- Minimization of the environmental emissions of gas turbines and co-generation plants.

- Gas Turbine and Co-Generation Plants: Learn about the reliability, life cycle cost, profitability, refurbishment, and life extension methods for all types of gas turbines and co-generation plants.
The instructor relies on a highly interactive training method to enhance the learning process. This method ensures that all the delegates gain a complete understanding of all the topics covered. The training environment is highly stimulating, challenging, and effective because the participants will learn by case studies which will allow them to apply the material taught to their own organization.
Each delegate will receive a copy of the following materials written by the instructor:
1. “POWER GENERATION HANDBOOK - 2nd edition” published by McGraw-Hill in 2011 (800 pages)
2. Practical manual (300 pages)

Philip Kiameh, M.A.Sc., B.Eng., D.Eng., P.Eng. (Canada) has been a teacher at University of Toronto and Dalhousie University, Canada for more than 22 years. In addition, Prof Kiameh has taught courses and seminars to more than four thousand working engineers and professionals around the world, specifically Europe and North America. Prof Kiameh has been consistently ranked as "Excellent" or "Very Good" by the delegates who attended his seminars and lectures. Prof Kiameh has taught a variety of seminars at Global Innovative Campus during the last few years, which have been received very well.
Prof Kiameh wrote 5 books for working engineers from which three have been published by McGraw-Hill, New York. Prof. Kiameh has received numerous awards including the first "Excellence in Teaching" award offered by the Professional Development Center at University of Toronto (May, 1996).
Prof. Kiameh performed research on power generation equipment with Atomic Energy of Canada Limited at their Chalk River and Whiteshell Nuclear Research Laboratories. He also has more than 29 years of practical engineering experience with Ontario Power Generation (formerly, Ontario Hydro - the largest electric utility in North America).
While working at Ontario Hydro, Prof. Kiameh acted as a Training Manager, Engineering Supervisor, System Responsible Engineer and Design Engineer. During the period of time that Prof Kiameh worked as a Field Engineer and Design Engineer, he was responsible for the operation, maintenance, diagnostics, and testing of gas turbines, steam turbines, generators, motors, transformers, inverters, valves, pumps, compressors, instrumentation and control systems. Further, his responsibilities included designing, engineering, diagnosing equipment problems and recommending solutions to repair deficiencies and improve system performance, supervising engineers, setting up preventive maintenance programs, writing Operating and Design Manuals, and commissioning new equipment.
Later, Prof Kiameh worked as the manager of a section dedicated to providing training for the staff at the power stations. The training provided by Prof Kiameh covered in detail the various equipment and systems used in power stations.
Professor Philip Kiameh was awarded his Bachelor of Engineering Degree "with distinction" from Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. He also received a Master of Applied Science in Engineering (M.A.Sc.) from the University of Ottawa, Canada. He is also a member of the Association of Professional Engineers in the province of Ontario, Canada.
