Overview

Description

Selection and construction of pipelines take up the majority of the work in the design of a process plant for transporting water, sewage, oil, gas and waste. A technical staff should have expert knowledge on piping system devices and its operation to design a more efficient piping system.  
This course is designed to help students to understand the fundamentals of piping system including pumps, piping hangers, reactors and heat exchangers.
After completing this course, students will have sound knowledge on the latest advances in pipe design and installations that minimize risk.

Instructor

Behrouz Ghorbanian

BSc, MSc, MIEAust

Behrouz has completed degree courses in Telecommunications and Electrical Engineering overseas. He also completed his studies in Electrical Utility Engineering at Curtin University in 2004. Behrouz started his career in the oil and gas industry where his role got him involved in the maintenance and repair of electronic and navigational marine equipment (VHF and SSB radios, Sat Nav, engine control panels etc). He then moved to the power industry and was involved in the design, installation, and commissioning of substations mainly for consultancies and utilities. He has also established a good reputation in teaching power system protection over his long term services lecturing at Curtin University, and also over the period he worked as a Protection Engineer in New Zealand.

Over the past years, Behrouz has been involved in many major projects across Australia (Port Hedland, Barrow Island, Tamar Valley, Karratha, and Newman for example). His most recent experience is related to cost estimation and risk assessment of major substation projects with a special focus on the secondary systems (Protection, COMMS, SCADA). He has also worked as an Engineering Manager and Senior Project Engineer on major copper mine projects overseas. Behrouz has also gained good knowledge in substation design, HV cables sizing and installation, transmission system design, earthing system design and applications, and power system protection design and applications.
