Overview of Training
Our course objective is to introduce your engineers, both electrical and mechanical, to Variable Speed Drives technology and applications.
Our training is aimed at giving you an insight into how to get the best from the drives you have already on site. The training is focused around practical ‘hands on’ exercises where engineers become familiar with VSD’s using a demonstration case containing an ABB VSD and motor, and a simulated I/O control panel. This delivers a working knowledge of the ABB drive keypad and what to do under fault conditions.
