Over its operating lives, an AC induction motors will encounter various power quality events, from transients to voltage imbalances and single phasing.

Therefore, being familiar with power quality events and how to deal with them is important. Regular measurement procedures, starting with nominal voltage, current and frequency are the starting point for long-running optimal motor and drive operation. Adding equipment monitors and relays may provide more long-term solutions.

This webcast will specify and analyze the various power quality events to consider while outlining troubleshooting techniques that pinpoint solutions.

 

Learning objectives:

  • Review motor basics, including variable frequency drives
  • Identify the most common types of power quality events
  • Examine various monitor and relay options
  • How to get optimum, long-term performance from AC induction motors.
