Road Show Outline

Class Topics:

The Drives Road Show Training class is designed to give technicians and engineers a basic foundation of drives knowledge as well as answers to issues that come up with their drive applications.

Part 1 of the Road Show training class addresses specific issues of the students. Each student is asked about their drives experience, the drive applications found in their plant, and what they want to learn about drives. Once the students' training needs are determined, a course outline for Part 1 is created by the Training Engineer.

Part 2 of the Road Show training class provides the students with a basic foundation of drives knowledge. Class topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Theory of Operation
    • Drive versus an across the line motor starter
    • Basic Drive Configuration
    • V/Hz discussion
    • PWM
    • Carrier Frequency
    • Reactors
    • Motor Consideration
  • Energy Savings

A combination of lecture and hands-on demonstrations allows students to become more comfortable with the products.
