This course supplements a person's practical qualifying experience (as described in the BC Power Engineers, Boiler, Pressure Vessel and Refrigeration Regulation) by providing the theoretical training required to enable graduates to challenge the Interprovincial Standardized Power Engineer's examination for Part B - Paper 4 of a First Class Power Engineer's Certificate. Upon successful completion of this course, as well as courses POWR 1225, POWR 1226 and POWR 1227, POWR 1228, POWR 1229, POWR 1230 and POWR 1231 plus the requisite qualifying experience, participants will have sufficient skills and knowledge to fulfill the requirements of the First Class Power Engineer's Certificate examinations administered under the BC Boiler and Pressure Vessel Safety Program. Graduates should be able to apply the knowledge learned in this study program in improving their abilities to operate plant equipment within the scope of a First Class Power Engineer's Certificate. Topics include Business and Workforce Management.
Upon successful completion, course participants will be able to:
Fulfill the examination requirements for 'Part B - Paper 4' in the subjects of electrotechnology, compressors and nuclear power.
Describe principles and apply equations to determine unknown variables in calculation problems relating to dc and ac electrical circuits, systems and machines employed in industrial power plants, as listed in the detailed description for this course.
Describe principles of operation and constructional details of typical ac and dc power plant electrical machines and distribution equipment, as listed in the detailed description for this course.
Describe principles and apply equations to determine unknown variables in calculation problems relating to air compression theory.
Describe principles of operation and maintenance procedures for typical constructional arrangements of reciprocating and rotary air compressors and related auxiliary equipment.
Describe principles of operation and constructional details of nuclear power plants, including typical reactor designs, their control and safety systems.
Effective as of Fall 2003
