5 Day Level II Motor Circuit Analysis and Electrical Signature Analysis Seminar

Course Type: Public Classroom
Course Number: 10038

Three days of MCA™ (De-Energized) training provides specialized procedures and guidelines for machines not covered in the MCA™ Basic courses, prepares you to troubleshoot transformers, DC motors, wound rotor induction motors, synchronous motors & wind turbines generators.  Two and a half days of ESA (Energized) training prepares you to evaluate many types of electric motor systems to improve the reliability and uptime of your plant. This course provides an understanding of the dynamic forces that affect operations in electrical machinery and their associated equipment.  This course is appropriate for both supervisors and technicians. Course materials include Workbook, Motor Circuit Analysis Manual and Pattern Recognition Manual. Breakfast and Lunch are provided each day.
