The purpose of this motor control training course is to educate both new or experienced industrial electricians and motor technicians who are responsible for the installation, maintenance, and repair motor control centers. Students will learn proper motor control maintenance and troubleshooting techniques which will allow them to ensure optimal operation of electric motors while at the same time reducing repair times.
This course is designed to educate industrial, commercial and institutional motor users about the many savings to be gained from optimum motor control, protection, and maintenance.
Electric motors consume almost 50 per cent of all electricity and in industry, that percentage increases to about 70 per cent. Optimum motor control affects plant production, energy savings, and motor replacement costs.
Students will have an opportunity to ask specific questions and exchange ideas relating to their own unique situations. This motor control training course is designed to be an interactive, problem-solving, learning environment for delegates of all disciplines.
This motor control training course provides the basic information required to safely operate and maintain low and medium voltage motors and controls. At the conclusion of the course, students will understand the basics of electric motor control maintenance procedures.
