A motor or control circuit failure can mean unplanned equipment shutdowns, a loss of production and expensive downtime and repair costs. Understanding the operation of motor control circuit equipment and developing effective troubleshooting skills will significantly reduce the length of an outage. This class presents an advance understanding of safe work practices when working on motors and other electrical systems. Resources for predicting the likelihood of equipment failure will be provided, and a basic program for clearly identifying problems. Common electrical devices and their operational requirements will be discussed. Diagram analysis for troubleshooting will be practiced. The proper use of safety equipment, knowledge of electrical hazards, and knowledge of how to respond in the event of an electrical disaster are absolutely essential for all electrical personnel. Anyone who works on or near power generation, transmission, or distribution systems should attend this course. Additionally, supervisors, managers, safety personnel, and those responsible for ensuring a safe work environment should attend this course.
