This one-day course is intended to give an introduction to electric motors and VS Drives to non-electrical engineers who are required to design pumping systems, approve designs submitted by sub-contractors, or advise clients on possible improvements to existing systems.
Using a series of demonstrations, presentations and practical exercises, the course will provide an overview of electric motors and the principles of VS Drives, with particular reference to their application in pumping systems.
There will be discussion of the potential efficiency improvements made possible by the use of VS Drives, and of some of the pitfalls to be avoided.

Trainees should gain:
An appreciation of basic electric motor theory and construction.
An appreciation of basic VSD theory and operation.
An appreciation of the factors affecting the selection of variable speed drives; their advantages and limitations.
An understanding of how to predict the performance of a pump-VSD combination.
Some ideas on how to optimise pump station performance by use of a VSD.

The material will be presented by means of a series of lectures and demonstrations, supported by practical exercises
No prior electrical knowledge will be assumed.
Trainees will be expected to have a basic knowledge of pump applications.
For those who do not have such knowledge, attendance at the Pumps for Beginners course is recommended.

Engineers who need to design pumping systems, whether as part of their daily work, or only occasionally.
Engineers, and others, who are called upon to assess designs submitted for approval.
