3 Phase Motor Basics
This course is designed for those individuals who are familiar with the concepts covered in our Basic Industrial Electricity seminar and want to further their training in this field. Attending Basic Industrial Electricity is not a prerequisite for attending, but it is recommended.
This course covers three phase motors in more detail than Basic Industrial Electricity. Motor construction, nameplate data, and principles of operations are discussed as well as terminal markings, electrical connections, and enclosure styles. The course includes how to properly size overloads, fuses and circuit breakers to protect motors. Attendees will learn the common causes of failure for electric motors and the proper steps necessary in troubleshooting. PLCs will also be introduced and discussed in the context of how they apply to maintenance personnel. This will be a good introduction for someone who knows little about PLCs. There will be a discussion on the general operation and basic troubleshooting procedures as well. The material covered in this electrical training will be practical and is designed to make an immediate positive impact on your maintenance department.
