2.5 Day Electrical Signature Analysis Motor Diagnostic Workshop - Level II

Course Type: Public Classroom
Course Number: 10042

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.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course students should be able to:

  • Understand the 5 most common energized diagnostic techniques. Describe the motor fault that each of the techniques identifies
  • Explain the 4 Primary Maintenance Philosophies
  • Describe the 3 phases of Predictive Maintenance
  • List the different types of Electrical equipment, identify their components and describe the purpose of each component
  • Explain the operation of the different types of Electric equipment
  • Describe the 4 stages of rolling element bearing failure and explain how to determine which stage a defective bearing is in
  • Determine Motor Shaft Speed based on Measured Values of Voltage, Current, Nameplate Speed and Rated Power
  • Understand which electrical & mechanical faults can be analyzed with ESA and what causes these faults & guidelines on how to correct them
  • Discuss the relationship of Dynamic Load and bearing life
  • Discuss the effects of Resonance in a mechanical system and what it will do to the electrical spectrum- guidelines on how to correct
  • Explain how to determine which gear is at fault when gear problems are diagnosed in the electrical spectrum
  • Understand and define the terms used in ESA
  • What is meant by pole pass frequency (PPF) & how to calculate
  • Evaluate the condition of a squirrel cage rotor using the ESA spectrum and rotor severity
  • Explain the difference between Static and Dynamic Eccentricity
  • Define what is meant by Stator Electric Faults
  • Understand how to set up ATPOL II™ for various electrical testing, such as transients, & PQ studies
  • Demonstrate the ability to set up routes using the ATPOL II™
