Continuing Education

Upcoming Courses

Electric Motors and Drives, Control, Faults, Protection, Troubleshooting and Maintenance for Industrial Applications
15-19 October 2017 ($2,500)

Course Overview:
Electrical motors play a vital role in numerous industrial applications for process and production. Electric motor drives are known as backbone of any industry and are used in various applications such as in the oil and gas industry, refining, petrochemicals, seawater desalination,  power & utilities, mining,  cement, marine, transportation,  etc.

This course is structured to provide participants with an understanding of the principles of design, operation, control, protection and maintenance of electric AC/DC motors and their drives  in industry and provide the participants with the necessary knowledge on the typical wiring systems, testing, inspection, maintenance,  and troubleshoot  of electric motor  drive system guidelines.

Moreover, upon the completion of this course, participants would have a better  understanding  of the principles related to various motor drive systems and better awareness of required engineering practices in regard to motors  and drives operation  and  maintenance.

Laboratory  based  experimental  sessions are included to provide better understanding  of the topic.

Who Should Attend:
This course is designed for electrical engineers, electrical technicians, maintenance planners, supervisors with operation and maintenance responsibilities, and others who work in an industrial plant setting.

Power Quality and Management in Modernized Power Systems
14-16 May 2017 ($1,500)

Course Overview:
Today’s industrial power systems are complex and contain several power sources and loads with different levels of importance. Power disturbances often cross the meter boundary between utility and customer causing many problems such as motor overheating and transformer failure, unexpected tripping, inaccurate measurement, and voltage sags and swells. The ability to quickly identify and remedy power quality problems will help ensure metering accuracy, lengthen the lifetime of electrical equipment and improve power system availability.

This course has been designed to provide participants with an understanding of the issues that affect the power quality within an industrial power plant, the impact of power quality on the operation of the electrical equipment, and the remediation techniques used to reduce such impact.

On completion of this course, participants should have a better understanding of the technology related to the power quality and power management within industrial power systems. The course approach will be a general theoretical description of the technology related to the power quality and power management within industrial power systems for achieving optimum efficiency. Laboratory based sessions are also included to consolidate the theoretical explanations.

Who Should Attend:
This course is designed for electrical engineers, electrical technicians, maintenance planners, supervisors with operation and maintenance responsibilities, and others who work in an industrial plant setting.
