COURSE TITLE: Introduction to Motor Starting Analysis
COURSE NO: E05-008
Introduction to Motor Starting Analysis
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course addresses the benefits obtained from motor-starting studies and examines various types of computer-aided studies normally involved in motor-starting studies. It presents data or information required for these studies as well as the expected results of a motor-starting study effort. It presents numerous diagrams and waveforms to help students understand how large motors are started in large industrial systems.

 

The starting current of most AC motors is several times normal full load current. Both synchronous and induction motors can draw five to ten times full load current when starting them across the line. By using motor-starting study techniques, these problems can be predicted before the installation of the motor. If a starting device is needed, its characteristics and ratings can be easily determined. The study can help select the best method of starting, the proper motor design, or the required system design for minimizing the impact of motor starting on the entire system.

 

This 5 PDH online course is applicable to electrical engineers with a desire to learn about motor starting analysis.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the basic theory behind Motor Starting Analyses
  • Learning how starting and stopping large motors can affect industrial system performance
  • Learning about motor starting techniques
  • Learning about commercial software modelling techniques, simulation performance and interpretation of the results

COURSE TITLE: Continuous Energy Improvement in Motor Driven Systems
COURSE NO: E08-007
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Continuous Energy Improvement in Motor Driven Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents the fundamental information and necessary guidance required to assist the Manufacturing and Process industries in optimizing their electric motor driven systems which leads to substantial energy / cost savings.

 

Electric motors are among the least well-managed industrial equipment, even though motor-driven equipment accounts for approximately 70% of the electrical energy consumed by process industries and approximately 90% for electrical intensive industries. Motors that are not properly managed can result in billions of dollars in wasted energy and operating costs to an industry.

 

A detailed analysis of the U.S. motor systems inventory indicates that this energy use could be reduced by 11% to 18% if plant managers implement all cost-effective applications of mature and proven energy efficiency technologies and practices. It is worth noting that the suggested improvements are not necessarily limited to the U.S., but can be implemented in any industry around the world that utilizes motor driven systems.

 

This 8 PDH online course is applicable to electrical, mechanical, and industrial engineers as well as other technical personnel interested in learning more about improving the operation of motor driven systems.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Familiarizing with motor energy management and best practices
  • Understanding the different types of utility charges
  • Learning about the steps involved in conducting a motor survey
  • Familiarizing with motor specification and selection considerations
  • Estimating motor load and efficiency
  • Analyzing motor efficiency opportunities
  • Conducting plans for improving motor efficiency
  • Familiarizing with the opportunities to improve system efficiencies
  • Understanding the importance and practicality of power factor correction
Course Document
