AEGIS Loss Control is pleased to offer its latest webinar, Steam Turbine Generator Sequential Tripping and Overspeed Protection Considerations, on September 14 at 2:00 pm EDT.
Who should attend
Power plant operations and engineering personnel responsible for the safe, reliable operation of steam turbines are encouraged to attend this important safety webinar. Risk management employees who would like to get a better understanding of these essential protection schemes would also benefit by attending.
What is covered
This one-hour training webinar provides an overview of steam turbine sequential tripping and steam turbine overspeed protection schemes and their functional effectiveness. A solid understanding of these key protection schemes and their reliable operation is critical in preventing a steam turbine centrifugal explosion. Although infrequent, this type of destructive explosion represents the worst-case maximum foreseeable power plant loss event. This webinar offers the opportunity to learn from AEGIS Loss Control’s collective experience with these critical protection schemes from a risk management and operations perspective.
For more information or to register for the Steam Turbine Generator Sequential Tripping and Overspeed Protection Considerations webinar, please contact Michelle Battagliese by e-mail or at 201.508.2855.
