Reciprocating Engine Auxiliary Systems

Learning objectives

  • Explain the operation of the fuel systems for liquid and gas-fueled reciprocating engines
  • Describe the major components of a typical reciprocating engine lube oil system
  • Explain the function of compressed air systems in a reciprocating engine power plant
  • Describe the operation of the high-temperature (HT) and low-temperature (LT) cooling water circuits
  • Explain the purpose of the charge air and exhaust gas system
  • Describe the function of a steam generating system as it relates to a reciprocating engine power plant

Course overview

Large reciprocating engines found in power plants need many auxiliary systems to support their operation. The Reciprocating Engine Auxiliary Systems training course introduces the major auxiliary systems found in a reciprocating engine power plant.

This online training course explains how these major systems operate and describes their components, including:

  • Fuel system
  • Lube oil system
  • Compressed air systems
  • Cooling water system
  • Charge air and exhaust gas system

This course is part of the Reciprocating Engine Power Plants training series.
