2.5 Day Electrical Signature Analysis Seminar

Course Type: Public Classroom
Course Number: 10011

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 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:

    • List the 6 most common de-energized motor diagnostic techniques and 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 AC Motors, identify their components and describe the purpose of each component
    • Describe the 4 stages of rolling element bearing failure and explain how to determine which stage a defective bearing is in
    • Explain the operation of the different types of AC Electric Motors
    • Determine Motor Shaft Speed based on Measured Values of Voltage, Current, Nameplate Speed and Rated Power
    • Describe how electrical signature analysis (ESA) collects its signal
    • Demonstrate how to change the resolution of the high frequency and the low frequency spectrum
    • Explain the importance of sidebands in the FFT and discuss their meaning
    • Demonstrate how to enter machine information in the ESA Software
    • Demonstrate how to verify running speed is correct
    • Perform an automatic analysis
    • List what mechanical faults can be automatically analyzed with ESA
    • Discuss the relationship of Dynamic Load to bearing life
    • Discuss the affects of Resonance in a mechanical system and what it will do to the electrical spectrum
    • Explain how to determine which gear is at fault when gear problems are diagnosed in the electrical spectrum
    • List the motor electrical faults that can be automatically analyzed with ESA
    • Define what is meant by pole pass frequency (PPF)
    • 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
    • Explain the main purpose of the ALL-TEST PRO Energized II (ATPOL II) and briefly describe it’s features
    • Use the ATPOL II to obtain data from a 3 phase AC Motor in the Remotely, Locally and Manual Modes
    • Demonstrate the ability to upload data stored in the ATPOL II into the ESA software and generate a machinery report
