Troubleshooting Motor Control Circuits

IEP203 - 16.00 Hours

Description

This hands-on 16 hour training course provides a review of motor control circuits used in industry and facility applications. An emphasis is placed on AC and DC motor control circuits, variable speed and frequency drive techniques, and a variety of soft start configurations. During the two-day course, participants actually build and troubleshoot a number of circuits in lab.

This course can be scheduled to meet your specific needs. For more information about this course or to schedule a class for your organization, please contact Knowledge Engineering at (800) 541-7149 or ke@teex.tamu.edu.
