The operation and maintenance of large combustion turbines for electric power generation can be enhanced by training plant operators and maintenance technicians using Digital Video Interactive (DVI®) technology.

DVI® is an all digital format for generating motion video, audio, animation, and graphics and still images. Using DVI® for visual information display provides effective training that encompasses both functional and diagnostic training, and can be augmented by on-line access to gas turbine documentation. The success of DVI® as a training vehicle is expected to be patterned after the success of interactive videodisc with the added advantage of an all digital format. DVI® is being integrated with other advanced technologies including expert systems and intelligent tutoring to form a complete informational resource for diagnostic training, visual data bases, and post disturbance analysis and blade inspection.

These informational resources can be applied to on-site training using a new low-cost portable delivery system combining powerful microcomputers, dual visual displays, and large disk storage media. This portable information system is an outgrowth of the EPRI research into field troubleshooting based upon the SA*VANT® system. SA*VANT® is a portable computer-based expert system advisor to aid technicians in troubleshooting the Westinghouse 501 during fail-to-start situations.
