In this variable frequency drive (VFD) training, participants learn proper design recommendations to ensure that your equipment is as energy efficient and safe as possible. Discover the best practices for frequency drives in HVAC, pumping, and facility applications. Whether you’re in facility maintenance, chilled water systems, waste water systems, or manufacturing, our variable frequency drive basics training seminar unlocks the secrets of VFDs to maintain your equipment.
In the hands-on lab portion you will use scopemeters to see how improper designs can lead to motor deterioration and other problems. You will program and troubleshoot newly upgraded equipment that includes Allen-Bradley Powerflex4 and ABB ACS-350 variable frequency flux vector drives. Learn to manipulate external drive control wiring. Gain troubleshooting skills by deciphering fault diagnostics and correcting problems.
The VFD training seminar starts at a basic level and builds, avoiding the need for any technical prerequisite, other than the desire to increase your knowledge and understanding of variable speed drives.
People who will benefit from attending this training include:
Energy management personnel
Apprentice and experienced HVAC technicians
Fire Alarm Technicians
Plant & facility maintenance technicians
Building managers & superintendents
Plant & facility managers
Anyone who needs cross-training on VFDs
What You'll Learn
The advantage of using Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) is their energy saving potential. Students calculate the enormous energy savings using data from live measurements, and plot the data to show the energy savings VFDs offer over standard HVAC speed control designs. The seminar starts at a basic level and builds, avoiding the need for any technical prerequisite. Just come with your desire to grow your knowledge and understanding of variable speed drives.
Topics covered during this training include:
Electrical and power transmission basics
AC induction motors
Operation, setup and maintenance of VFD
Energy saving techniques
Program drive parameters
Speed, torque and horsepower relationships related to variable frequency drives
The effects of running motors at very low speed, above base speed and varying speeds
Troubleshooting and fault handling
Improve reliability and extend the life of your motors and drives with proper install
