Description

Instrumentation and controls in a boiler plant encompass an enormous range of equipment from simple industrial plant to the complex in the large utility station. The boiler control system is the means by which the balance of energy & mass into and out of the boiler are achieved. Inputs include combustion air and fuel while flue gas and steam part of the output.
This course is designed to help students to understand the basic principles of boiler control, feedwater control and draft control including burner management systems.
After completing this course, students will have excellent knowledge on the boiler design, control functions and advanced control strategies for improved boiler plant efficiency.
