K-Sim® Thermal Power Plant

SIMULATION TRAINING For safe, efficient and economical thermal power plant operation
The K-Sim Engine Thermal Power Plant simulator is based on a real thermal power plant in Vasteras, Sweden.

The K-Sim Engine Thermal Power Plant (TPP) simulator is based on a real thermal power plant. The main purpose of the Thermal Power Plant simulator is to train and assess operators in plant operations such as; plant start-up and shut-down, emergency situations and safety procedures.

The main purpose of the Thermal Power Plant simulator is to train and assess operators in plant operation, including training in plant start-up and shut-down, emergency situations and safety procedures.

MODEL

The simulated plant is made available to be fuelled with oil (mainly for start-ups with special start-up burners) or coal. At pure condensation operation the block produces a net electrical output of 255 MW (190 MW for coal). The utility heatinghot water effect at back pressure operation is 350 MW with oil, and 260 MW for coal.

COMPLIANT WITH INDUSTRY REQUIREMENTS

Kongsberg Digital simulator models exceed requirements in the STCW convention, Regulation 1/12 and fulfill DNV GL’s standard DNVGL-ST-0033 for MaritimeSimulator Systems.

TRAINING LEVELS

The Thermal Power Plant model is designed to be a valuable tool in the basic and advanced training of engineers. The training objectives are to train junior engineers in basic engine room operations, senior engineers in emergency operations and trouble shooting, and to train senior and chief engineers in optimal operation, fuel economy and energy conservation. This is achieved by controlled training, leading to better understanding of the total plant operation, as a result of realistic simulation of a real engine room.

TRAINING OBJECTIVES

The Thermal Power Plant model is designed to be a valuable tool in the basic and advanced training of engineers. The training objectives are to train junior engineers in basic engine room operations, senior engineers in emergency operations and troubleshooting, and to train senior and chief engineers in optimal operation, fuel economy and energy conservation. This is achieved by controlled training, leading to a better understanding of the total plant operation, as a result of realistic simulation of a real engine room.

ADDITIONAL TRAINING POSSIBILITIES

The flexibility in K-Sim Engine Thermal Power Plant enables training and study possibilities such as:

  • Test and tune control loops before implementing on a real system
  •  Re-train experienced process operators to identify abnormal process conditions and methods of dealing with them
  • Re-train experienced process operators to identify abnormal process conditions and methods of dealing with them
  • Allow commissioning engineers to test out different start-up procedures
  • Modify control and logic before installing on the real system
  • Re-train experienced operators to optimize the process for maximum economic performance
  • Verify process design and study effects of modifications to the process by altering the model
  • Optimize the control system and process to maximize economic performance
  • Train the control operators and instrumental engineers prior to process start-up
  • Test and modify logic in a dynamic environment
  • Familiarize and train new plant personnel before they are assigned to the plant
  • Check out new controls and operating strategies

K-Sim connect enables training anytime & anywhere

Several of our simulators are now available as online training applications on K-Sim Connect, which is our platform and ecosystem for maritime simulation and training. Our eLearning modules will enable you as an instructor to manage and distribute high-quality simulation exercises to your students, who can practice and prepare for their exams in their own pace – anytime and anywhere.

COMPLIANCE

STCW Requirements for Training

All K-Sim simulator systems and models within the class A, B and C meets the IMO’s STCW requirements for training. In addition, several K-Sim Engine models are compliant with the IGF Code’s training requirements of crew working on low-flashpoint fuels. 

DNV Certification

All K-Sim simulator systems and models within Class A, B and C are certified by Det Norske Veritas (DNV) according to the current standard DNV-ST-0033 Maritime simulator systems.

Nautical Institute

All K-Sim DP (Dynamic Positioning) simulators are complaint with the Appendix E – NI DP Simulator/Equipment specification issued by Nautical Institute in the Dynamic Positioning Operator Training Scheme Accreditation Standard.
