|AC and DC Motors: AC Motor Theory
- This CD-ROM explains the fundamental principles upon which AC motor
operation is based and the basic components of an AC motor and how they
work. This lesson also covers types
of motors commonly found in industry,
how they differ, and where they are
|AC and DC Motors: AC Motor Maintenance
- This lesson covers AC motor maintenance, including the three types of
motor maintenance: preventive,
periodic, and corrective maintenance. The
covers the various tools and instruments
used to conduct motor maintenance and maintenance safety and record
keeping. This lesson also explains why maintenance programs are
important, characteristics of various types of maintenance, and
maintenance tasks to be done during each type of
|AC and DC Motors: DC Motor Theory
- This lesson introduces participants to the application of direct
current motors and their components. This
covers general characteristics of
a DC motor, DC motor components, their functions and the design of the
brush assembly. This lesson explains
such as flux interaction, commutation, the effect of multiple windings,
armature reaction, compensation and CEMF, and how each of these factors
effects motor operation.
|AC and DC Motors: DC Motor Maintenance
- This lesson describes some of the basic concepts of DC motors;
explains how DC motors differ from AC motors; and describes the
components of a DC motor and their functions. This
also covers DC motor maintenance,
including commutator inspection and
maintenance, as well as brush maintenance. The
lesson explains various types of commutator problems and how to remedy
them; and describes how to select,
install, and seat brushes.
Motor Controls Interactive CD
- Most AC motors are started through
a standardized control system designed
to protect the motor, the circuit,
and operating personnel. This computer
based training tool focuses on ladder
diagrams, wiring, and troubleshooting
techniques for the most common motor
used in industry, the AC induction
motor. New interactive exercises and
quizzes help you hone your troubleshooting
Troubleshooting - Motor Control
Circuits - While using this program, the trainee is able to perform
virtually every operation used on real equipment, including taking
voltage, resistance and current readings.
& Selection of Motors
- This interactive CD-ROM provides
an overview of how electricity causes
a rotor to turn and offers guidelines
for specifying the appropriate motor
for a given application.
Motor Controls Interactive CD-ROM - The Interactive Companion
is correlated to each section in the core textbook
Industrial Motor Controls, 4e By working
through the CD-ROM, complete with
animations, narration, overviews,
and Glossary, students will have a
solid understanding of motor controls.
& Troubleshooting Motors
- Provides a step-by-step model with
examples of how to conduct a thorough
economic and operational analysis
before replacing any motors.
Controls & Drive Types -
Explains how motor controls safeguard
equipment from damage and contribute
to efficient operation and production.
Motor Control Tutor II
- This interactive tutorial makes the concept of ladder logic simple to
understand. The tutorial begins with basic concepts such as 2 or
3 wire control systems. It then
advances to increasingly complex systems.
These concepts become clear when seen
in action. Each circuit also
includes a detailed explanation of
Three Phase Motors -
Learn how to diagnose voltage problems,
size overload protection properly, and select the right motor for the job.
