Event description

Description

Course Overview

Medium voltage ASDs (MV Adjustable Speed Drives) and motors are widely applied to plant rotating machinery like compressors, pumps, fans, extruders, mills, kilns, etc., ranging from a few horsepower (HP) to tens of thousands of horsepower. Safe, reliable and successful application of these ASDs and motors require a system level approach.

The TMEIC Medium Voltage Systems School is an information-packed one-day series of practical sessions covering the selection, specification, and application of industrial MV equipment. Project engineers, equipment specifiers and technical stake holders will learn key application concepts for MV large motors, adjustable speed AC drives, and related MV power systems and distribution equipment that support the motor and drive installation. Instructors are TMEIC application engineers and industry experts with many years’ experience in MV drives, motors and integrated system applications in various industries.

The focus for the course will be application topics that can be used right away to specify, evaluate, procure and install a successful MV motor and drive system. The dimensions of the course will be medium voltage (>2.3kV) and motor power ranging from 500 HP thru 100,000 HP. In addition to classroom presentations, attendees are encouraged to bring their own real-world application issues for group discussion. Five (5) Professional Development Hours [PDH] will be documented for those interested in applying their participation to maintaining their professional accreditation.

What you WILL NOT Receive
• A commercial about TMEIC
• Sales Pitches to sell TMEIC motor and ASD solutions
• TMEIC Product Overview
• Commissioning and Troubleshooting specific TMEIC products

What you WILL Recieve
• Technical content containing almost 200 slides
• Relevant technical articles and papers
• Tips, rules of thumb and shortcuts

Here's what previous attendees say about the school:

“General, non-product specific, knowledge, and cost benefit analysis for different options.
The presenters had excellent knowledge of the subject matter.”

“Overall a good understanding of motor selection, what to avoid, application, VFD selection and application.”

“Both the motor section and VFD section were very instructive. Great class!"

“It was technical and not sales oriented. Very high density application information with real life examples. Great training!”

Preliminary Agenda

Answers to the most common questions & more:

  • What does Active Front End and Diode Front End ASD mean?
  • When would I specify a Synchronous motor over an Induction motor?
  • What is the relationship between Torque, Voltage, Power Factor and Efficiency?
  • How can I start a load with very high inertia?
  • How can I better protect my motor?
  • What type of bearing and enclosure should I choose for fixed-speed, and/or variable-speed operating scenarios?
  • What are the most common types of motor accessories and their costs?
  • What’s so special about an API541 motor?
  • What is an ASD and how does it work? I need a 15 minute “ASD for Dummies” crash course.
  • How can I use an ASD for starting a motor and/or transfer to the utility line?
  • When can an ASD be used to save my electricity bill and the hefty demand charge?
  • What are the break points between Air and Water Cooled ASDs?
  • How does the ASD mitigate line side harmonics?
  • What are the considerations for applying an ASD to an existing fixed-speed motor?
  • What should I keep in mind when evaluating a direct-on-line vs. soft starter vs. ASD motor starting strategy?
  • Should I buy the motor and ASD as a single package, or can I separate the scope?
  • How are ASDs designed to eliminate water leaks in the system?
  • What is the difference between a voltage source inverter and current source inverter?
  • What are the common points of failure in an ASD and how to mitigate them?
  • Do’s and Dont’s of specifying ASDs and motors.
  • What cables should I use with my MV ASD?
  • What is the distance limitation between the motor and ASD?
  • And more

Presenter Biographies:

Manish Verma graduated in 2006 from Virginia Tech with BSEE. He began his career with TMEIC in 2006 while continuing his professional education. In 2009 he completed his MSEE with concentration in power. After a broad exposure and education in the various TMEIC business units, he joined the global drives division, with concentration on sales and application engineering. His responsibilities include providing solutions-based engineered adjustable speed drives and motors, reviewing specifications, and technical and sales training for a wide variety of industrial clients and channel partners. He is an active member of IEEE and has authored and presented more than 15 technical papers and tutorials for several conferences and seminars.

Brandon Kim is a sales application engineer specializing in MV Motors at the TMEIC office in Houston, TX. Brandon received his BSc in Mechanical Engineering at University of Warwick (UK) in 2006. He has since worked in the energy industry including several years at Hyundai – Heavy Rotating Machinery division as an Application Engineer. His responsibilities include power systems, MV induction and synchronous motors, and technical training. He is an active member of IEEE.

Note: Final detailed agenda may vary | VFD & ASD are used interchangably and they mean the same. VFD = Variable Frequency Drive, ASD = Adjustable Speed Drive
