In addition to consulting on boilers/HRSGs and heat recovery,I also conduct
courses on thermal and process design aspects of
Steam generators,Waste heat boilers,HRSGs
including Process Heat Transfer. This 2 to 4 day course can be conducted at
your facility or can be arranged through Calibre Communications (Chemical
Industry Digest) any where in India.I also conduct courses overseas if invited. I have conducted several 2 to 5 day courses for organizations such as: PDVSA,Venezuela,RIPI,Iran,NTPC(delhi),Thermax(pune),Reliance(patalganga),IPCL,L&T(vadodara) and in Bahrain(for Saudi Aramco,Saubic).Please email me if you need more information. Plant engineers will benefit from the discussions on performance aspects of superheaters,evaporators,economizers,circulation,heat transfer,field data analysis etc. They will also learn to evaluate proposals and bids from process view point and ask the right questions before buying any boiler. It is the author's feeling(after numerous discussions with Indian plants, that proper questions are not posed to the boiler supplier before the boiler is purchased and hence several performance issues crop up after the equipment is installed.(on-site courses may be ideal for plants with 20-30 participants..)
ABOUT THE COURSE
WHO WILL BENEFIT?
Plant engineers,energy management and steam plant engineers,consultants involved in cogeneration or heat recovery projects,performance engineering,contractors in all process industries. Emphasis is on industrial applications,design and performance prediction including discussion of operational issues. A backgound in heat transfer or process calculations will be very helpful. Using the methods taught at the course,one can predict or understand the boiler or HRSG performance, efficiency or off-design performance or study the impact of boiler/hrsg modifications or steam/fuel/gas flow variations on unit performnace. One need not go back to the boiler or HRSG supplier for each sizing or performance evaluation studies.
A special course on BOILER CALCULATIONS is also available. This will enable process engineers who have some background in process design to evaluate the performance of boilers,heat recovery systems and their components such as superheaters,economizers,evaporators and also evaluate important aspects such as boiler efficiency,circulation,heat flux,tube or fin temperatures,off-design performance or fouling. They can evaluate the performance of steam generators and check if the component or system is functioning well or not at any load condition. Problems of a practical nature and analysis of field data are emphasised.
has over 30 years of experience in the engineering of steam generators,HRSGs
and waste heat boilers with emphasis on thermal design,process design and
performance aspects.He has authored over 250 articles and has authored
4 books on boilers and heat recovery. He has also contributed several chapters
to the Encyclopedia of Chemical Processing and Design and the Handbook
of Engineering Calculations. His latest book "Industrial Boilers and Heat
Recovery Steam Generators" will be also used as a reference at the
course.His software "HRSGS" will be demonstrated for simulating the design
and off-design performance of complex,multiple pressure,unfired and fired
HRSGs.Ganapathy presently lives in Chennai,India and offers consultancy on Boilers, Heat Recovery steam generators.
