Electric Motor and VFD Drives

16 & 17 July 2021 | 2:30 PM to 5:00 PM

Two Day Online Program

Date :16 & 17 July 2021
Time :2:30 PM to 5:00 PM
Course FeeRs 950 (Inclusive of 18% GST)

Program Overview

Electric motors convert electrical energy into motion and are found everywhere in industries, buildings and homes also. However, motors do not convert all energy to usable energy because some of it is lost as heat during the conversion process. Motors often oversized for the application as margins of safety in design, manufacturing and procurement cascade one on top of the other. Sometimes, these are oversized out of concern for the power quality. Improper motor rewinding is a source of further energy losses.

An energy audit is a systematic identification of opportunities for energy efficiency improvement in industry by an internal or external certified energy auditor. An energy audit is usually followed by an implementation plan for the most cost-effective energy-savings measures. From the perspective of motors, energy audit should support energy auditors with motors specific methodologies, tools and training.

Improvements in the system can sometimes save as many times the energy as in the motor, alone. Considerable energy savings are possible if the speed of the motor is reduced. Proper sizing and selection of motors and drives have significant impacts on energy efficiency, operation, reliability, maintenance. 

Course objectives

At the end of course, participants will learn and gain the insight on the importance of

  • How to do Motor survey  and motor performance assessment in the field
  • How motor sizing affects efficiency and maintenance
  • Rewinding  processes and how they affect motor efficiency and reliability
  • Learn best practices through practical case studies 
  • VFD drive selection for various application such as fans, pumps, conveyors, and compressors.
  • Identifying energy saving measures 
  • Provide information on latest trends & technologies 
  • Help industry to identify saving potential and possible areas of motor performance improvement
