Advanced Thermal Power Plant Simulation POWX 3110

Power Microcredential Course

International Fees

International fees are typically 3.12 times the domestic tuition. Exact cost will be calculated upon completion of registration.

Course details

This course incorporates simulator activities delivered via a cloud-based solution accessible through a web browser. Upon successful completion, participants will attain an advanced level of proficiency. This proficiency enables them to navigate simulated thermal power plant operations, evaluate control loops in a simulated environment, summarize the effects of process modifications through manipulation of the Thermal Power Plant model, articulate strategies for enhancing economic plant performance, and test and modify control logic in dynamic environments. T hese ac quired skills not only empower participants within their professional roles but also contribute significantly to improving safety standards in the energy industry. Furth ermore, they play a pivotal role in supporting Canada's transition to a low-carbon economy. Evaluation will be based on individual simulation lab work, with a passing mark being a prerequisite for obtaining the Microcredential.
