This hands-on course is intended for new or experienced electricians and technicians that install, maintain, repair or troubleshoot MCCs rated 600 volts or less.
Students learn effective MCC maintenance and troubleshooting techniques enabling technicians to: ensure correct operation of control scheme, reduce repair times and identify problems in control circuits from the manufacturer. Class participants learn to design basic ladder diagrams for motor control circuits then wire up the circuits on simulators.
The course will be covering:
• Identify and understand application of motor control pilot devices.
• Interpret MCC wiring diagrams and schematics.
• Recognize control circuit types and understand applications of two-wire control, three-wire control, reversing circuits, sequence control, jogging and inching circuits.
• Explain the methods of deceleration, reduced-voltage controls, speed controls and
operating principles of variable frequency drives.
• Troubleshoot motor control circuits utilizing a multi-meter.
• Design and wire various motor control circuits.
