COURSE TITLE: Pumping System Performance Improvement
COURSE NO: M07-002
Pumping System Performance Improvement
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes techniques to improve pumping system performance and other pumping system related considerations such as maintenance, life-cycle costs and pumping system assessments.

 

The pump systems sourcebook used in this course was designed to provide pumping system users with a reference that outlines opportunities for improving system performance.  It is meant to provide practical guidelines and information to make users aware of potential performance improvements.

 

This 7 PDH online course is applicable to any engineer that is involved in system designs that require pumps for any fluid.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Pumping system basics
  • Pumping system components
  • Performance improvements
  • Assessing pumping systems
  • Pump maintenance
  • Economics of improving pumping systems
  • Pump reference directory
  • Glossary of basic pumping system terms

COURSE TITLE: Variable Speed Pumping
COURSE NO: M03-003
Variable Speed Pumping
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the basics of pump types, selection procedures, variable speed drives for pumps, capital cost savings, and system analysis.

 

Significant opportunities exist to reduce pumping system energy consumption through smart design, retrofitting, and operating practices. In particular, the many pumping applications with variable-duty requirements offer great potential for savings. The savings often go well beyond energy, and may include improved performance, improved reliability, and reduced life cycle costs.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical engineers, design and construction personnel, technical staff and facility personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding of variable speed pumping.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Pump types
  • Pumping systems
  • Retrofitting of pumping systems
  • Benefits of variable speed drives
  • Potential drawbacks of variable speed drives
  • Capital cost savings

COURSE TITLE: Vibration Isolation Optimization
COURSE NO: M02-004
Vibration Isolation Optimization
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the vibration isolation modeling, optimization techniques, mass properties and stiffness and dampening of airbags and steel springs.

 

In this study an analytical and experimental study is conducted to investigate the effect of isolator locations on the effectiveness of vibration isolation systems. The study uses isolators with fixed properties and evaluates potential improvements to the isolation system that can be achieved by optimizing isolator locations.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to all engineers who select and specify vibration isolation products and wish to optimize the selection of those vibration isolation products.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Vibration isolation modeling
  • Stiffness and damping
  • Optimization techniques
  • Mass properties, stiffness and damping and constraint evaluation
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you will need to review the material contained in Discrete Optimization of Isolator Locations for Vibration Isolation Systems:  An Analytical and Experimental Investigation, SAND96-1169, printed May 17, 1996.
