  • Inverters

Overview

Credit: 3 PDH

Length: 37 pages

The intention of this course is to show how many types of motors are turned on and off. A number of different AC motors are looked at, and ways to start and stop them are addressed. Reversing techniques are also addressed. Then various Electronic techniques for controlling motors are addressed. Both Alternating Current motors and Direct Current motors are covered. All in all, this is a very nice coverage of a subject that is often overlooked in our educational systems.

This course was designed for electrical engineers as well as engineers of other disciplines. Electrical engineers will have a deeper understanding of how motors are controlled. Engineers from other disciplines will get an idea of the problems faced by the people responsible for making their facilities and plants run properly. This will help engineers understand each other's special problems. The more that we, as engineers, understand the problems faced by other engineers, the better that we will be able to do our specific jobs.

There is very little math involved in doing this course. It is mainly an explanation of how various kinds of starters and speed controls work. Many schematic drawings are included to help engineers understand how the devices that are covered work. It would be almost impossible to cover all of the various motion control devices out here in the industrial world. I have attempted to give a good overview of the most common devices that I have been exposed to in 25 years of industrial experience.

Special Note: Course E-2015W and course E-3019 are alternate presentations of the same course material. Therefore, only one version, either the course or webinar, can be taken during a renewal cycle. If you have any questions regarding course eligibility, please contact our Customer Service Team.
