204 Motor Starting Analysis and Application with PTW 2-Day Training
Review of fundamental considerations for motor starting, including motor fundamentals, theory, application and common motor starting techniques
Discussion of the effects of motor starting on electrical distribution systems
Presentation of several practical examples of motor starting in a laboratory environment
Presentation of several class examples that will help students gain a basic understanding of motor starting performance calculations
Discuss issues and examine study results, potential problem areas and implementation of study recommendations
Basic computer skills
SKM Power*Tools Standard 3-Day and Advanced 2-Day Training OR Hands-On 2- Day Training, OR working knowledge of SKM PTW Software
Students are urged to review:
IEEE Brown Book Std 399 - 1997, chapter 9
IEEE Red Book Std 141-1993, chapter 10
This course involves the application of the Power*Tools program to analyze a sample AC electrical distribution system containing various sizes of motors utilizing different starting techniques. A motor starting analysis of the distribution system will be reviewed and then performed using the software. Students will earn 1.6 CEUs for this 2-day course.
Typical Industrial and Commercial Power System Example:
Data gathering and input data requirement
Exposure to load flow analysis to the extent to establish initial conditions for
motor starting analysis
Comparison of induction motor models available: single rotor and double
rotor circuits vs. graphical model
Review of data required to properly model the motor to be started
Understanding of the motor performance test data including torque slip vs. slip, current vs. slip, hot and cold start thermal limits, etc.
Importance of inertia, both motor and load, on motor starting
Discussion of various motor starting methods: delta-wye, autotransformer,
capacitor, and soft-start
Examination and interpretation of PTW study results and potential problem
areas in the power system
Discussion of methods and procedures for completing a typical study
Overview of motor protection and relationship to motor starting methods
Discussion of compliance with various standards and requirements
Hands-On Lab - Analysis of a Sample Electrical Distribution System in PTW:
Interpretation of Equipment datasheets
Data gathering, data input and system modeling
Relationship between Load Flow results and Motor Starting study
Examination of specific motor starting technique being utilized
Verifying compliance with related codes and standards
Discussion of study results and methods to improve distribution system
This course is intended for electric power engineers responsible for the design and analysis of three phase electrical distribution systems. No previous electrical distribution system analysis experience is required.
