This course will focus on three-phase motors found in commercial HVAC products. Three-phase motor theory and the configuration of various motors will be covered. Motor construction, application, as well as proper maintenance and service will be covered. We will discuss advanced motor troubleshooting and failure analysis.
We will discuss motor starters, including Y-Delta, Part-Winding, Across-The-Line, VFD, Solid State, Auto Transformer, and Primary Reactor, along with where each type is best employed.
Special emphasis will be placed on the motor itself and the fundamentals of three-phase induction motors as they are the most common and yet most often misunderstood in our industry.
