1/19/2023 - #3579: Electric Motors and Energy Efficiency in Water and Wastewater Systems
St. Michael Fire Hall
The purpose of this course is to teach water, wastewater, and maintenance personnel basic electrical concepts and calculations to better apply electrical motors and to maintain electrical motors to maximize energy efficiency. The class will stress the importance of using high efficiency motors and how motor size in HP can effect efficiency in a given motor application. This class will also stress the importance (and demonstrate) how to properly take electrical measurements using a multi-meter and then how to perform necessary calculations using those measurements. The class will also teach participants how to calculate energy savings and pay back time which can provide a powerful incentive for system boards and administrations to use high efficiency motors and either replace or rewind old inefficient electric motors. The true purpose of this course is to help water and wastewater systems to improve energy efficiency and therefore improve their long term viability.
Supplies, materials and lunch are included with registration.
