Synopsis
This is the second part of a two day class designed to show you the fundamentals of motor operation and selection as well as how to design motor circuits. Learn the basics of variable frequency drive application. See how to model various motor parameters for determining a motor’s effect on the power distribution system including voltage flicker, harmonics and torque speed analysis.
