BASIC ELECTRICITY AND MOTORS & MOTOR CONTROLS OVERVIEW
(Course ID: MFIT MOT3)
The goal of this training program is to increase the participants’ knowledge of basic electricity and motors & motor controls systems in order to install, operate and maintain waste water treatment systems.
This course provides 30 contact hours of instruction and exercises focused on delivering an overview of basic electricity and motors & motor controls to training participants.
Topics covered are electrical laws and principles pertaining to DC and AC circuits and common types of electric motors from small pole fan motors to large three-phase motors. This includes current, voltage, resistance, power, inductance, capacitance, transformers, the use of standard electrical tests, electrical equipment, motor theory, magnetism, motor rotation, motor starting components, protective devices for motor circuits, heat dissipation, motor slippage, wiring speeds, how capacitors affect motor circuits, and safety procedures and practices are emphasized.
INDUSTRIAL MOTOR AND MOTOR CONTROLS
(Course ID: MFIT MOT1)
Almost all modern production machinery is driven by an electric motor. These industrial workhorses are available in an overwhelming variety of types, configurations, and horsepower. Industrial Motor and Motor Controls is designed to give each participant the necessary tools to understand and work safely with the common types of electric motors.
