The Institute has state-of-the-art, high fidelity, dynamic, full-scope replica Simulators of 135 MW-Circulating Fluidized Based Combustion (CFBC) generating unit. Routine Plant start up / shut down operations, cold-warm-hot startups, coasting down from full load to a lower load, handling plant emergencies and engineering analysis and some functional/maintenance aspects of major plant equipments are the salient features of the installed simulator. A Simulator is widely used for training of Operators/Engineers who gain experience quickly in normal, abnormal and emergency operation of a Power Plant. After two-week training Engineer/Operator is capable to work in control room and also can handle the emergencies.
