Combined-Cycle Simulator Delivered to Joliet Junior College

WSC delivered a generic Combined-Cycle simulator for use as a teaching aid for Joliet's Operations Engineering and Technician (OET) program. The Joliet OET program aims to give students hands-on experience and knowledge of operations in the petrochemical, nuclear, and manufacturing industry. Joliet is partnered with companies in the industry such as Aux Sable, CITGO, Exelon Generation, LyondellBasell, and TC Energy. The generic combined cycle simulator is based on a 2-on-1 configuration, with emulated GE Cimplicity & Ovation HMIs. The Simulator includes models of all plant systems required to train operators in plant fundamentals and operations. The simulator will be set-up as a classroom such that students can run a copy of the simulator independently on their workstations or work as a team, with multiple students running on one workstation tied to a common load.
