Training Introduction & Description:


   (UPS), also called uninterruptible power supplies, are machines that are designed to take over the supply of electrical power to a load whenever the normal supply fails.  Energy is either supplied by a storage device (battery) or conversion of fuel (generator) or both. The UPS system functions to provide insurance in two major areas. First, it provides “buffering” or complete isolation between the utility lines and critical load, thereby enhancing the proper operation of that load. Secondly, the UPS system has the capability of providing unimpaired operation of the critical load, even in the event of complete loss of electrical input power. Different kinds of UPS systems have different capabilities in regard to both functions, and these capabilities must be carefully weighed against the specific needs of a given application. In addition, of course, the whole aspect of UPS reliability must be examined to be sure that the “solution” does not create more problems than it solves. This course shall be l illustrated video as training aid


    In the other hand part -2 of the course reflect the relationship between compressor operation and surge within the compressor map. These basic topics are the foundation for a better understanding of the theory behind compressor controller , Anti surge and Performance control systems

  Examine the correlation between the Surge Control Line and the PI response, including factors which influence the safety margin. Learn why Recycle Trip response is necessary and how it protects the compressor.  Discover how the Controller detects a surge event and how the “Safety On” response gets the compressor out of the surge condition and stabilizes the process. You will also gain an understanding of how the Operator is notified of the control events

  Discover how to use the Surge Control Line for surge protection, the pros and cons of having small or large margins, and what influences the selection of the safety margin - typical illustrations modernizations of  up to date controller hardware , configuration , operations and trouble shooting

Who Should Attend:

          All Graduate, senior, Electrical & instrument  technician & supervisor

Training Methodology

    Each participant will receive a copy of the comprehensive course notes. The presenter will outline and discuss the topics using computer displays, CD displays and videotapes. The course is designed to have an interactive format to maximize delegate participation. Questions and answers are encouraged throughout and at the daily sessions. Needs-Based case-studies and examples will be discussed in problem solving workshop sessions. This gives participants the opportunity to discuss with other delegates and the presenter their specific problems and appropriate solutions. Only minimum note taking is encouraged to ensure maximum delegate attention during the course.
