Seminar Program

The seminar draft program has been designed to provide participants with a comprehensive insight into the operational fundamentals of turbomachinery utilized in various industrial contexts. This category of turbomachinery encompasses gas compressors, gas turbines, and steam turbines. Throughout the seminar, we will elucidate the thermodynamic, aerodynamic, and rotordynamic principles underpinning these machines, coupled with an exploration of control concepts. Our primary objective is to foster a deep understanding of the inherent limitations and possibilities associated with these machines, and by extension, the diverse array of applications to which they are applied.

These applications span a wide spectrum, including power generation, gas compression for upstream, midstream, and downstream operations, encompassing liquefied natural gas (LNG) production. Of particular significance, we will delve into the pivotal roles of these machines within the realms of carbon reduction, the burgeoning hydrogen economy, and the intricate processes related to carbon dioxide (CO2) capture, transportation, and sequestration.

Our location

With team members spread across the globe, the core team is based in Zurich Switzerland.
