Introductory, and Advanced Electrical Training Seminars
Place or Ours?
We Are Happy To Accept
|This is NOT a sales seminar. This is a heavy hands-on variable frequency drive training workshop. Students will
learn PWM AC drive systems.
Each student will train on, learn on, troubleshoot, test, connect, operate, and program an actual
3-phase AC drive.
Electrical Training USATM and Drive Systems, Inc., our parent company, have no affiliation with nor do we represent any manufacturer of any kind of electrical equipment.

AC Drives Onsite Seminar
This seminar provides
maintenance personnel and technicians with useful information about AC drives that can be immediately put to work on the
job. The functions and testing procedures of the major drive components are examined in detail. The hands-on training also includes connecting a 9-lead, 3-phase motor to an AC drive and programming the drive for proper operation. The student will start-up and operate the drive in the classroom and will be faced with programming challenges. Upon completion of this seminar the student will be able to troubleshoot, repair, program, and solve most drive related problems including programming and start-up of new or replacement AC drives. While the information provided in this seminar can be applied to all modern brands of PWM type AC drives, the hands-on drive programming will be performed on Allen-Bradley AC drives.
Excerpts taken from the AC Drives student manual:
The Magnets within the Motor and Motor Torque
When the voltage applied to a motor is increased the current flowing through the electro-magnets in the motor increases resulting in higher field strength and increased motor torque output. This is a commonly used technique, especially in AC drive applications and is a very good way to gain torque capability when needed. This technique can cause higher than normal motor heating resulting in reduced motor life. Close monitoring of the motor is required. Avoid saturating the core.
Student Manual Cover
Motor speed is directly proportional to the applied frequency (or Hertz). Increase the applied frequency and the motor will speed up. Reduce the frequency and the motor will slow down.
The speed at which the magnetic field in the motor is rotating is called the synchronous speed because it runs in direct synchronism with the AC generator that is providing the power...
