Because motors are so common and critical in industrial facilities, this hands-on course demonstrates the ability to quickly recognize, diagnose and remedy an evolving motor problem to help prevent catastrophic failures.
When troubleshooting motors, technicians should perform electrical tests on insulation before mechanical inspections, because of the lower time investment. This course provides information to enable class participants to establish effective motor maintenance programs. This will increase productivity, reduce unnecessary downtime, maximize electrical motor efficiency and save money.
The course will be covering:
• Identify the fundamentals of AC and DC motor construction.
• Interpret nameplate data and NEMA design codes.
• Explain installation, starting/stopping methods and maintenance of single-phase and three-phase synchronous, squirrel-cage (induction) and wound-rotor motors.
• Identify appropriate configurations of motor protection and control circuits.
• Perform and evaluate results from motor rotation, insulation and surge tests.
Who Should Attend
This hands-on course is intended for new or experienced electricians and technicians that install, maintain, repair or troubleshoot rotating machines. The participant should have basic knowledge of AC/DC electricity.
