Overview
This course is specifically designed for Ohio-licensed engineers to qualify as a "timed and monitored" online course. The course contains an automatic timer that prevents the user from accessing the quiz and earning a certificate of completion until the minimum amount of study time has been met. This achieves the Ohio Board's intent that an online course should be "paced" by the provider. For more information, please see the Ohio state requirements. This course may also be accepted in other states (see the "Board Acceptance" tab above). However, if you are not licensed in Ohio, it is suggested that you purchase the self-paced version of the course.

In Combustion Turbine Power Plants, you'll learn ...

  • The benefits of combustion turbine power plants
  • The components that make up a combustion turbine power plant
  • The chemical composition of natural gas
  • How natural gas is classified; The location of natural gas reserves

This 3-hour course is about combustion turbine power plants. A combustion turbine power plant is a simple plant that typically consists of a gas turbine supplied by natural gas. These plants are not particularly efficient, but they are relatively inexpensive to build and can be installed in a short amount of time. They are ideal for short-term needs and for supplying peak needs. When used in a combined cycle plant though, the overall efficiency is very good. With large quantities of natural gas available in the US, combined cycle power plants are expected to be a major component in utility generation fleets for many years. This course covers the design and operational characteristics of combustion turbines as well as taking an in-depth look at the natural gas industry.
