EASA , the Electrical Apparatus and Service Association, has announced its spring 2004 seminar schedule, which begins next month and runs to May 2004. Attendance is open to members and non-members.

Four courses comprise EASA’s upcoming seminars:

  • "Principles of Large AC Motors" (January 30-31, 2004) in St. Louis, MO, will appeal to maintenance and field service personnel with its coverage of motor applications, safety issues, vibration, starting methods, and reconditioning. Focus is on induction machines in the 300-5,000 hp range, but principles presented apply to all ac motor sizes.

  • "Mechanical Repair Fundamentals of Electric Motors" (March 19-20) in Philadelphia, PA, covers basic aspects of motor repair, including motor materials and their characteristics, loads/stresses, common failure modes, and recommended repair practices.

  • "Fundamentals of DC Operations and Repair Tips" (April 16-17) in Atlanta, GA, addresses issues of direct-current (dc) motors, preferred by some users and which still represent a huge installed base. Course theory is geared to entry-level personnel, while overall content applicable to veteran technologists.

  • "Root Cause Failure Analysis" (May 7-8) in Las Vegas, NV, will present a methodology to identify the most probable cause of electric motor failure, for types of failure from the most common to the unusual.
