AT10203 – 5 Day Motor Circuit Analysis and Electrical Signature Analysis Seminar

Two days of MCA (Off-line) training prepares you to troubleshoot all types of electric motors, coils, and windings. Three days of ESA (On-line) training prepares you to evaluate many types of electric motor systems to improve the reliability and up-time of your plant. This public course is appropriate for existing ALL-TEST PRO testing instrument users as well as potential customers, electricians, plant maintenance engineers, supervisors, plant managers. In fact, anybody who are interested in improving the electrical reliability in the plant should attend.
Course materials include Workbook, Motor Circuit Analysis Manual and Pattern Recognition manual. Breakfast and Lunch are provided each day.

Upon successful completion of this course students should be able to:

Identify the components in the winding system; factors that determine
Resistance(R), Inductance(L), Capacitance(C), and Impedance(I/F)
Describe how changes in R, L, Z, and I/F affect the winding system
Explain the Lenz Law, Ohms Law, and Faraday’s Law
Use the basic MCA instruments to manually measure R, L, Z, Fi and I/F
