This course is intended to provide the participant with an understanding and comparison of the major design approaches for two and four cycle industrial engines, primarily as applied in the natural gas compression industry. In this course, the participant will learn the basic theory of two and four stroke cycle engines, the major support systems for stable and reliable operation, benefits and liabilities of forced induction systems and the differences as these are applied to the two engine types, a general introduction to exhaust emissions and emission reduction approaches, and an overview of engine control panel basics.

This course would be particularly appropriate for persons in the engine application and plant engineering design area. It will provide an understanding of what systems must be installed to give safe operation and help in evaluating the peculiarities of these two basic engine design types.
