Start and Run up a Gas Turbine

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Elements and Performance Criteria




Plan and prepare work


Safety issues are identified to comply with enterprise/site requirements


Work requirements are identified from relevant personnel and documentation


Pre operational checks are carried out on plant according to manufacturer's recommendations and site requirements


Where appropriate, the teams and individuals roles and responsibilities within the team are identified and, where required, assist in the provision of the on-the-job training


Operate plant


Pre-operational conditions are established in accordance with enterprise standards and site requirements


Where the gas turbine is a component of a combined cycle unit pre-operational conditions of the Heat Recovery Steam Generator, associated steam mains and Steam Turbine are established in accordance with enterprise standards and site requirements.


Starting procedures are commenced and correct purge, ignition and run-up sequence observed


Minimum operation of gas turbine is established and supported in accordance with enterprise, manufacturer's and site requirements.


Where the gas turbine is a component of a combined cycle unit monitoring and control of Heat Recovery Steam Generator drum level, feedwater flow, steam and metal temperature rates of rise, steam pressure rate of rise, steam flow and drainage are carried out in accordance with manufacturer's and site requirements


Gas Turbine exhaust gas temperature and flow to the Heat Recovery Steam Generator and Gas Turbine power output are monitored and adjusted to achieve required steam conditions and demand, observing operating requirements


Plant is operated within limits of plant design, enterprise or site requirements.


Plant is monitored and observed to detect deviations from required operating conditions.


Corrective action is taken to rectify abnormalities in accordance with manufacturer's and enterprise/site procedures


Test plant operation


Tests are performed in accordance with defined procedures applicable to the operational test


System and plant is observed for correct operational response


Corrective action is taken when response is not in accordance with documentation, plant integrity or personnel safety requirements


Plant is returned to required operational status upon completion of test


Identify and respond to plant operation anomalies


Cause/s of abnormal plant operating conditions are identified by analysing the technical and operational information in a logical and sequential manner


Corrective action taken is in accordance with enterprise/site procedures


Plant integrity and personnel safety is maintained through consultation with appropriate personnel, and reference to plant, technical and operational documentation


Appropriate personnel are notified when defects are detected
