COURSE TITLE: Improving Motor and Drive System Performance
COURSE NO: E06-006
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Improving Motor and Drive System Performance
Course Highlights

This online PDH course presents the basics of motor and drive systems and briefly describes important terms, relationships, and system design considerations. It also provides a roadmap for finding opportunities to improve motor performance, as well as exploring the economics of motor systems.

 

Electric motors, taken together, make up the single largest end use of electricity in the United States. In the U.S. manufacturing sector, electric motors used for machine drives such as pumps, conveyors, compressors, fans, mixers, grinders, and other materials handling or processing equipment account for about 54% of electricity consumption.

 

To achieve cost-effective operation and maintenance of a motor and drive system, operators must pay attention to the entire system as well as to its individual components. Often, when investigating efficiency opportunities, operators are so focused on the immediate demands of this equipment that they overlook the bigger picture, which includes the ways in which system parameters affect all the equipment.

 

This 6 PDH online course is intended for electrical and mechanical engineers, contractors, manufacturers, building professionals and others interested in learning more about improving motor and drive system performance.

COURSE TITLE: Introduction to Protective Device Coordination Analysis
COURSE NO: E04-030
Introduction to Protective Device Coordination Analysis
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to protective device coordination analysis in a very structured fashion. First, a modelling technique is shown for a generic power system, protective relays are modelled in detail, and relay settings are determined based on short circuit current calculations. A detailed explanation of modelling and calculation procedures is offered. Illustrated techniques can be implemented in any commercial power system software package.

 

The objective of a protection scheme in a power system is to minimize hazards to personnel and equipment while allowing the least disruption of power service. Coordination studies are required to select or verify the clearing characteristics of devices such as fuses, circuit breakers, and relays used in the protection scheme. These studies are also needed to determine the protective device settings that will provide selective fault isolation. The goal is to achieve an optimum balance between equipment protection and selective fault isolation that is consistent with the operating requirements of the overall power system.

 

This 4 PDH online course is suitable for electrical engineers with a desire to learn about the analysis of protective device coordination.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding the basic theory behind protective device coordination studies

COURSE TITLE: Arc Flash Resistant Equipment
COURSE NO: E02-019
Arc Flash Resistant Equipment
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents details that address IEEE and IEC equipment accessibility types, arc resistant ratings, and testing procedures according to IEEE standards.

 

Arc flash resistant equipment may be described as the equipment made to withstand the impact of internal arcing fault by meeting the testing requirements of IEEE Guide C37.20.7-2007. In the 1970s, an interest started in Europe in assessing electrical equipment under internal arcing, which lead to IEC standard. This research spread to North America and was used as a foundation for EEMAC G14-1 procedure. The development of IEEE standard heavily relies on Annex AA of IEC standard and adopts many of the refinements originated in EEMAC G14-1 procedure. IEC 62271-200 defines the requirements for factory assembled metal-enclosed switchgear and control gear for alternating currents at rated voltage above 1 kV and up to and including 52 kV. It includes indoor and outdoor assemblies and frequencies up to and including 60 Hz.
