Fundamentals of MV Motors
MetadataShow full item record
Medium voltage ASDs (MV Adjustable Speed Drives) and motors are widely applied to plant rotating machinery like compressors, pumps, fans, extruders, mills, kilns, etc., ranging from a few horsepower (HP) to tens of thousands of horsepower. Safe, reliable and successful application of these ASDs and motors require a system level approach. The Short Course is an information-packed one-day series of practical sessions covering the selection, specification, and application of industrial MV equipment. The focus for the course will be application topics that can be used right away to specify, evaluate, procure and install a successful MV motor and drive system. The dimensions of the course will be medium voltage (>2.3kV) and motor power ranging from 500 HP thru 100,000 HP. In addition to classroom presentations, attendees are encouraged to bring their own real-world application issues for group discussion.
