MCSA for Induction Motor Diagnosis & VFD


Hands-on activities will be led on the Machinery Fault Simulator (MFS) to show run of the typical motor fault and to inspect the issues encompassing vibration analysis versus motor current signature analysis. Average machine fault will incorporate unbalanced rotor, bowed rotor, broken rotor bars, shorted turns over low voltage stator windings, air gap eccentricity, and bearing imperfections under different loading conditions. The direction is performed in a classroom setting with workstations organized for conducting controlled activities. Every workstation comprises of a MFS with an assortment of  fault kits, a 8-channel information securing framework with a PC, programming for simulating signal processing concepts, preparing and data analysis software, completely wired sensors, and fundamental frill, for example, tachometer, strobe, and so on. Each of the PCs are arranged for open exchange of data and enhanced discussion. Copied shortcomings from case histories will be incorporated.
