SAIEE RMS CPD Course | Select, Maintain & Operate Your Rotating Electrical Machines Like A Pro
The SAIEEā€™s Rotating Machines Section proudly presents an advanced course in the practical selection and maintenance of Industrial Rotating Electrical Machines. The course is structured to share specific information that is not covered in traditional forums and other courses, it provides engineers and technicians in the Rotating Electrical Machines field with valuable, modern, practical and useful material over a three day schedule. The structure of the course has been tailored specifically to provide an in-depth understanding of these machines, a thorough treatment of their maintenance management, failure analysis, case studies, and a look into the recent and future developments in modern machine topologies and drive types. The course objective is to give a wide range of delegates practical take-home benefits, with local and international relevance from small to very large machines. The course is presented by four leading specialists with a combined experience of more than 70 years in rotating machines.
