NUPT 113: diesel engines and the emergency diesel generator system
Basic components knowledge and power plant fundamentals: are industry required standards for BSCstudents in the NUPT program. The learning requirements of two directly related requirements havebeen combined in this course and are indicated below by acronyms.Desired outcome for Basic Component Knowledge (BCK): describe basic theory, construction,application, and operation of basic plant components.Desired outcome for power plant fundamentals (PPF): explain the principles and/or describe items aslisted below.Enabling statements:* Describe and / or explain the theory, construction, principles, and application of diesel engines,including the following:* Accessories/support systems (BCK & PPF)* Failure mechanisms and symptoms (such as failure to start, failure to reach operatingspeed, failure to stop, rough idling) (BCK & PPF)* Main structural components (such as frame, block, pedestal, fuel distribution system)(BCK & PPF)* Main moving components (BCK & PPF)* Principles of operations (BCK & PPF)* Switch gear distribution, protective relays, engineered safeguard systems.separation / cable routing* Control circuits, relays, (time delay energize & de-energize to actuate), starting,protective, Indications, alarms, and monitored parameters.*Meters such as (such as voltage and current and how a change in meter indicationcould indicate circuit degradation of a change in process)EDG technical specifications
NOTE: whenever there are contradictions between the lecture notes and the text book; go by thelecture notes for testing purposes and for understanding industry standards.
this unit will cover information on diesel engines and will concentrate on the nuclear plantSafety related Emergency Diesel Generators (EDG). After the Fukushima nuclear accidents
