Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes practical sessions and demonstration for diesel engine maintenance and troubleshooting. Theory learnt in the class will be applied using various types of diesel engine equipment through hands-on practical sessions. Diesel engines are the dominant propulsion engine of choice for most of the commercial and industrial applications in the world. Further, diesel engine is the emergency generator everywhere and for every applications in general such as hospitals, department stores and even in main power generation plants and utility plants in oil/gas fields and petrochemical plants. Diesel engines power virtually all of the off-highway construction equipment. Deep water commercial freighters or containerships are almost all diesel engine powered. The passenger ships are primarily either diesel or a combination of diesel and gas turbine. The fuel economy, low maintenance costs, and reliability of diesel propulsion has lead to major retrofits so the ships could be operationally cost competitive. Why is the diesel engine the dominant choice for these applications? The diesel engine produces far more useful torque per rated horsepower than spark ignition (Sl) gasoline engines or gas turbines. Diesel engines are much more efficient, durable and reliable than any other heat engine. US diesel engine manufacturers warranty their Class 7 & 8 heavy-duty truck engines for 500,000 miles! In other words, the diesel engine powered vehicles are the most economical to own and operate.This course is designed to provide a good overview of the maintenance, troubleshooting and service of industrial diesel engines. It will cover system operation, engine specifications, troubleshooting, lubrication and maintenance, testing and adjusting as well as a detailed account of the causes of engine malfunctions and their solutions. Through interactive lectures, discussions, case studies, exercises and videos, the first four days of the course will cover everything related to diesel engines from components up to maintenance. The last day of the course (day 5) will be conducted in a workshop where participants will be given hands-on experience on operating, testing, troubleshooting and maintenance of a diesel engine.
