Description

Without exception, the reciprocating piston engine is the most influential machine ever invented by mankind. From its early beginnings as a steam engine, the piston engine has revolutionised the way we live, work and travel. This course will teach you more about this truly amazing machine.

In this course, you will learn:

  • Detailed two stroke and four stroke cycles
  • Detailed two and four stroke timing diagrams
  • Thermodynamic gas cycles (Otto, Diesel etc.)
  • Maintenance strategies (breakdown, scheduled, predictive etc.)
  • How an engine is started (starter circuit)
  • Centrifugal and electrical-hydraulic governors
  • What indicator and compression diagrams are
  • Engine protection - how to protect using temperature, pressure, flow and level measurements
  • And a lot lot more!

The course is designed to build on the knowledge gained in the Diesel Engine Fundamentals Part 1 course, although this course is also suitable to anyone who already has some diesel engine or automotive engineering background knowledge. As diesel generators are also used for rotating machinery such as sprinkler pumps and emergency generators, engineers working in HVAC, Power Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and other Mechanical Engineering related industries will find this course useful.

Written content has been read aloud so that you can 'learn on the go' without needing to watch the screen constantly.

Enjoy the course!

Requirements

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
