24 Mar 2020 Ex Full Training 3/24/2020 - 3/27/2020

Click to open full event details

The purpose of this Training is to ensure that all personnel repairing and overhauling Explosive Atmosphere Equipment are competent. It is a requirement for an Authorised Person to take responsibility for repair processes on Explosive Atmosphere Equipment and a requirement of Demonstrated Competencies. EASAs Ex training includes, in addition to the requirements of IEC 60079-19, the specific requirements for maintaining the efficiency of motors during overhaul and repair detailed in the Good Practice guidance in the EASA’s rewind study on Effect of Repair/Rewinding on Motors Efficiency as is now required by IEC 60079-19.

Training is to the requirements of IEC 60079-19 Explosive Atmospheres Part 19 Equipment repair, overhaul and reclamation and IECEx OD 504 to a syllabus developed and owned by EASA. Training is provided by a specialist training organisation under contract to EASA.

The scheme is defined in this document ‘Training and Assessment Scheme for the repair and overhaul of explosive atmosphere equipment to IEC 60079-19 for Operatives and Responsible Persons - Scheme Rules’. If you need more details, contact fbeghain@easa9.org.

Applicants for training and assessment are required to have had not less than three years, relevant experience (e.g. in non Ex work). The scheme is applicable to operators, craftsmen, technicians, engineers and senior management.

Three grades are recognized:

  • Operator (overhaul and repair with supervision)
  • Operator (overhaul and repair)
  • Responsible Person

All applicants are assessed by EASA, normally at the training centre, through written examination and practical assessment. Candidates applying for Responsible Person Certification have a more demanding experience requirements and must achieving a higher pass mark in the basic scheme examination.

7 Apr 2020 Fundamentals of DC Operation and Repair Tips 4/7/2020 - 4/8/2020

Click to open full event details

The seminar will cover DC machine theory and operation, as well as repair tips. Topics will include testing and winding of armatures, fields, interpoles and compensating windings, machine work, balancing, assembly and final testing. The theory portion is structured so that it can be grasped by entry-level personnel, while the overall material is in-depth enough that those with 30 years of experience or more will benefit.

Partial list of topics covered in the seminar include:

  • DC machine operation explained pictorially
  • Importance of symmetry to proper performance
  • Disassembly, test & inspection tips
  • Comparison and explanation of electrical test methods
  • Data-taking tips, with emphasis on critical information
  • Commutation and commutation difficulties
  • Armature and field winding tips
  • Field compounding
  • Assembly tips & test methods
  • Accessories, including tachometers
  • Troubleshooting techniques

The accompanying book is not meant to replace the many good texts that cover the theory and design of DC machines, but to supplement them. Its purpose is twofold: to help the technician understand DC machine theory without complex formulae; and in a larger sense, to record in one place the repair procedures and tips usually learned the hard way during a long career of DC machine repair. It may take a decade or longer for a technician to become proficient and knowledgeable. We hope this book will cut many years from that timeline.

The text begins with DC theory (no math, we promise!), and then follows the logical progression of a DC machine through the service center. Disassembly, inspection and testing are covered in the initial chapters.

Subsequent chapters are organized around the main parts of a DC machine. The final chapters cover assembly, final testing and application issues. Sections focusing on components explain how those parts work, how they are made and how they can best be repaired.

Repair tips gleaned from EASA members’ decades of experience are liberally sprinkled throughout the book. While many texts about DC machines explain how they should work, this is the first (to our knowledge) to discuss all the exceptions that a repairer is liable to run across during a lifetime of working with DC machines. These might otherwise be labeled “lessons learned the hard way,” except that the reader can benefit from having all these special cases collected in one source. When possible, it is better to learn by reading than by trial and error; otherwise, the first encounter with a unique design can result in a painful “learning experience.”

A DC machine can be used interchangeably as a motor or generator, simply by changing the connection. Any DC motor can be driven and used to produce power, and any DC generator can be motorized to provide mechanical power. Although this text predominately refers to “motor;” the material applies to both motors and generators.

As with the other EASA publications—Principles of Large AC Motors, Mechanical Repair Fundamentals of Electric Motors, and Root Cause Failure Analysis—each section is designed to stand alone. The small amount of duplication is intentional, to save the reader from flipping back and forth between sections.

9 Apr 2020 New Motor Root Cause Failure Analysis Training 4/9/2020 - 4/10/2020

Click to open full event details

One of the most important factors to consider when repairing & maintaining motor systems is to understand why do they fail.

This training is intended for anyone interested in understanding motor failures, and those who want to serve customers by addressing the cause of failure rather than the symptom.

For this new version, the training & manual have been reorganized and updated with new information including a new approach to methodology, new case studies and a new section covering synchronous machine failures. For example, the all new “Root Cause Methodology” section goes into great detail explaining that effective root cause failure analysis must take place within the context of a practical problem-solving methodology or framework.

It covers a modified Plan-Do-Check-Act process that emphasizes the importance of planning and the related problem-solving methodology components. In addition, besides a systematic approach to problem solving, root cause failure analysis of motors and motor systems requires familiarity with contributing factors attributable to various kinds of applications, environments and industries. This includes how various stresses can affect motor components and the reciprocal impact the motor system may have on the motor.

Participants at this training will receive a new manual with 328 pages that provides extensive information, including a wide range of failures, the likely causes listed, and the methodology for confirming the probable cause of each failure, with hundreds of pictures.

Seminar Highlights

  • Root Cause Methodology (all new)
  • Bearing Failures
  • Stator Failures
  • Shaft Failures
  • Rotor Failures
  • Mechanical Failures
  • DC Motor Failures
  • Synchronous Machine Failures (all new)
  • Accessory Failures
  • Case Studies (expanded)
  • References
  • Root Cause Failure Analysis

Click here to read more about the valuable book provided with this seminar!

Who should attend?

Motor Repair Specialists, Electrical maintenance technicians, supervisors, condition monitoring specialists, maintenance engineers and reliability engineers that are responsible for a fleet of electrical motors and want to learn how to diagnose and correctly find the root cause of an electrical motor failure.
