If you are involved in selecting pumps or designing, operating and maintaining pumping systems for electric power generation plants, consider attending the Hydraulic Institute’s Power Plant Pumps – Maximize Your Uptime & Reliability: 3-Part Webinar Series. The presenter, Bill Livoti, and I have worked together on a number of Hydraulic Institute projects including the book Optimizing Pumping Systems: A Guide to Improved Energy Efficiency, Reliability, and Profitability. Bill knows his way around the industry and is a long-time advocate for improved system designs. The webinar starts on Thursday, February 20th, so there’s still one day left to sign up.
Here is the webinar series information from the Hydraulic Institute (today is the last day to register!):
Join us on February 20, 2014 for the Hydraulic Institute’s latest Pump Training Event.
This new Power Plant webinar series provides a concise overview of how proper pump selection and operation for combined-cycle power plants are crucial for minimizing energy consumption and increasing overall plant efficiency, reliability, and profitability. This educational program is a “must-attend” for engineers and plant operators as it provides a better understanding of how pump selection can affect the overall systems design and reliability for power plants.
Increasing energy demands require improved design and operation to achieve greater efficiencies in today’s power generation facilities. In this series you will gain expertise on proper pump selection and ways to improve operations for any combined-cycle plant. This in-depth series will show a step-by-step process on how to minimize your energy consumption, which will increase your overall plant efficiency, reliability and profitability.
