Motor Controls 8-Part Series

This eight-part training series will help students understand the fundamentals of motor controls. While the entire series is designed to train in basic electrical maintenance, the individual courses also offer in-service maintenance personnel the opportunity to review basic information. The series is designed to familiarize students with the subjects of basic controls, overload and time delay relays, schematic symbols, and wiring diagrams; starting methods for squirrel cage, wye-delta, synchronous, and wound rotor controls; and installing and troubleshooting techniques.

The Motor Controls series is designed for electrical maintenance students who have little or no knowledge of the field. It does not assume any previous knowledge of motor controls. All the terms used are defined and explained throughout the courses, so students are not required to have a technical vocabulary to understand the content.
