TECHNICAL GENERAL CPS PLANTS COURSE 

The technical general CPS plants course is, without any doubt, one of the most successful one of RENOVETEC, due to the quality of the contents and its exclusivity: very few companies are qualified enough to teach courses in this field, which require trained teachers, who perfectly know this technology and who are in disposition to share every technical detail of this type of plants.

With more than 100 in-company courses of the field given since 2009 for the most prestigious companies in the area, this course is one of the most prestigious and important one of RENOVETEC.

 

OBJECTIVES OF THE COURSE 

The main objective of this course is to know the main aspects related with CPS plants and the systems that form these plants. The issues that are going to be studied in this course are solar radiation, solar field and its theoretical and technical basis, the complex heat transfer fluid system (HTF), the water-steam cycle, auxiliary systems (Balance Of Plant o BOP), high voltage electrical systems and more.
