Training course overview

This highly informative Induction Motor & Transformer Application training course offers practical information about two of the most important types of electrical equipment. You will learn how to apply, specify, operate, maintain, and engineer the installation of power transformers and induction motors and associated equipment in an industrial, commercial, institutional or electric utility setting, through this Induction Motor & Transformer Application training course.

This Coventry Academy training course will feature:

  • Familiarization with magnetic fields and magnetic circuits
  • Examination of transformer nameplate data
  • Analysis of single-phase and polyphase transformer connections and applications
  • Introduction to induction motors and starting/control methods
  • Overview of motor application procedure and motor circuit design basics

What are the goals?

By the end of this Coventry Academy training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the underlying concepts involved in the design of transformers and induction motors
  • Interpret transformer and motor nameplate data
  • Analyze transformer connections and select the proper connection for specific applications
  • Implement induction motor starting and control circuitry
  • Properly specify an induction motor for a specific application

Who is this training course for?

This training course is directed at engineers and technicians who have a working knowledge of three-phase power systems and the basic concepts of magnetic fields. Topics will begin at the fundamentals level and move to more advanced content as the training course progresses. This training course is designed for utility, plant, or consulting engineers and technicians involved in the selection, specification, application, operation, maintenance, installation, or engineering of the installation of motors or transformers. If you have recently begun a career or assignment in these areas, this training course will be of value to you.

This Coventry Academy training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Engineers and technicians new to the power industry
  • Intermediate-level engineers and technicians who specify motors and/or transformers
  • Professionals involved with the application of motors and/or transformers
  • Facility engineers responsible for motors and/or transformers

How will this training course be presented?

This training course will utilize a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, and retention of the information presented. These methods include workshops where attendees practice solving problems (bring a scientific calculator), case studies where concepts covered are applied to real-world situations, and simulations and animations to visually illustrate what would otherwise be abstract concepts in a novel and intuitive manner.
