Currently, all of our classes are offered via virtual instructor led training (VILT) using Microsoft Teams or RingCentral/Zoom and Amazon AWS Cloud-based servers. Attendees should use a locally installed VirtualPlant Cycle Builder and Microsoft Excel to complete the course. It is strongly recommended to use at least 2 displays/monitors when attending this class.
Courses are hosted from Amherst, NY USA, Bogota, Colombia, or Johannesburg, South Africa.
In-person Training and Workshop Option
Attendees have the option to attend those sessions with the dates shown in red in-person at the EtaPRO LLC office in Amherst, NY.
EtaPRO® VirtualPlant™ software provides actual and expected real-time and aggregate key performance indicators, such as efficiencies and capacities, for plants and equipment overall. VirtualPlant simulates an entire power generation cycle. The objective of the course is to familiarize students with VirtualPlant and to help develop and tune VirtualPlant models.
The objective of this course is to provide an overview of the VirtualPlant Cycle Builder software. Students will learn how to:
- Manage and maintain existing models
- Develop new models using the VirtualPlant Cycle Builder application
- Use models to create a parametric study
- Introduction of VirtualPlant Components
- Steam Turbines
- Gas Turbines
- Feedwater Heaters
- Building Simple Turbine Cycle Models
- Simple Rankine Cycle
