Training: How to diagnose malfunctions in electric motors?

What would the industry be without its electric motors?

The question that arises is how best to manage the maintenance of these essential assets in order to guarantee maximum reliability of the production lines and therefore their availability.

Predictive maintenance of engines is therefore becoming a key issue. Did you know that 40% of motor failures are of electrical origin? It is therefore important to consider MCA (Motor Circuit Analysis) & MCSA (Motor Current Signature Analysis) techniques as an integrated part of a global approach, aiming to control the failure modes influenced by or at the origin of supply current and voltage disturbances.


Learning objectives

- Identify the different industrial motor technologies and their associated components

- Identify the typical failure modes of electric motors

- Master the different measurement methods for monitoring the condition of electric motors

- Measurement methods for low and high voltage insulation systems

- Online (MCSA) or offline (MCA), the advantages, disadvantages and limitations of the different measurement methods
