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.
