Motor Control Training

Motor Control Training

You can access the live online training through our web-based platform from your own computer. You can see and hear the instructor and see his screen live.

You can interact and ask questions. The cost of the training also includes 7 days of email mentoring with the instructor.

Our 12-Hour live online instructor-led Motor Control Training course is designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of motor control systems, including their operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting. Through six interactive sessions, you will gain a solid foundation in motor control theory, techniques, protection, failure analysis, testing methods, and maintenance practices.

During the course, you will learn about different types of motors and their characteristics, the effects of power systems on motors, and how to apply motor loads. You will also explore various motor control techniques, such as starting and stopping methods, speed control techniques, and troubleshooting common motor control problems. In addition, you will learn how to protect motors from short-circuit, overload, and thermal failures, and how to use solid-state motor protection relays.

Our course will also cover the analysis of motor failures, including electrical, mechanical, and load-related failures. You will learn different testing methods for evaluating motor insulation, such as resistance, polarization index, hipot, capacitance, dissipation factor, and partial discharge tests. Finally, you will gain an understanding of motor maintenance practices, including electrical and mechanical maintenance, lubrication and cooling components, periodic testing, and motor cleaning, alignment, and balancing.

Through this interactive, problem-solving learning environment, you can ask specific questions and exchange ideas relating to your unique situations. By the end of the course, you will have a solid understanding of the basics of electric motor control maintenance medium-voltage and the knowledge required to operate and maintain low and medium-voltage motors and controls safely.

Whether you're a beginner or an experienced professional, this course will provide you with valuable insights and practical knowledge to advance your career in motor control. Let's get started!
