This one-of-a-kind course focuses on providing a foundation of the technical principles of electric
motor design, construction and operating principles important to motor sales, customer service and other
non-technical motor support activities.
We will first help you understand the technology of electric motors and then delve into the "why" and "what it means" of the many principles, design details, materials used, and end-user issues. A real-world, common sense attitude is used to help understand how key choices affect the motor delivered to the customer, in terms of performance, quality and value. Primary focus will be on fractional and integral horsepower NEMA-frame induction machines, including both random-wound and form-wound configurations. Other motor types will be discussed to illustrate their unique features and benefits. Most of the material is on topics and issues common to all motors.
The goal of this course is a solid understanding of the characteristics of electric motors to support activities important to providing high-quality sales & customer service to the end-user. Instruction assumes you have no prior formal technical education, but are currently working in, or with, the electric motor industry.
