SAIEE Rotating Machines Section

Inaugural CPD course (3 CPD points) – SAIEE-2685-V

Select, maintain and operate your Rotating Electrical Machines like a Pro

The SAIEE’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.

Day one – Introduction:

  • Introduction
  • AC Motor theory
  • DC Motor theory
  • Motor selection and application
  • Starting
  • Good winding practice
  • Installation
  • Maintenance
  • Testing
  • Interesting faults and failures

Day two – Maintenance: Getting the most out of your machines:

· Maintenance, Asset Management & Reliability: Maintenance Strategies and Plans

· Life prediction, life extension, optimisation, enhancement

  • Diagnostics, Testing and Root Cause Analysis
  • Condition Monitoring
  • Alternators versus motors

· Low Voltage versus High Voltage: Voltage and Power choices

  • Vibration of rotating electrical machines

· Variable speed drives and their application and effects on motors

  • Machine condition assessment
  • Efficiency improvement and testing
  • Repair, replace or refurbish?
  • Tan Delta and Partial Discharge
  • Stray Flux and other tests
  • Core Testing
  • Preventing bearing failures

Day 3: Modern Machine Technologies and Drives:

· What caused the surge in the commercialisation of the technologies:

International Efficiency (IE) classes as defined by the IEC
Understanding the IE classes (IE1 to IE4)
Drive fed and Sine fed IEC standards

· Industrial research on how the machine landscape has changed – 5 focus points:

Economic and market trends

Effects of efficiency standards

Consumer analysis

Application and application analyses

Motor technology trends (links to the next section)

  • Present and alternative technologies:

Line Start and Drive Fed machines:
Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machines
Reluctance Synchronous Machines
Synchronous Reluctance Machines
Drive fed Permanent Magnet Assisted Reluctance Synchronous Machines
Drive and control requirement for the above machines
