SSU offers workshops for water and wastewater personnel
Three workshops are being offered at Shawnee State
University for water and wastewater personnel beginning
Friday, Sept. 17.
The first workshop is three-phase Induction Motors and
Controls from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 17. Learn to
identify the components of a polyphase induction motor,
Calculate starting requirements and connect a polyphase
motor complete with starting controls and achieve proper
rotation, calculate percent of speed regulation and percent
slip for a polyphase induction motor. Learn to determine the
efficiency of a polyphase inductions’ motor and demonstrate
an understanding of power factor correction.
The second workshop is Synchronous Motors/Power Factor
Correction from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 15.
Operators need a thorough knowledge of power factor
correction in order the efficiently operate and design
treatment facilities and pump stations. This course is
designed to teach the student how to determine power factor
requirements for an AC load line, determine which type of
power factor correction is most feasible, and to calculate
the cost savings for utilizing power factor correction.
Students will also learn about precision speed control
applications obtainable from synchronous motors.
The third workshop is Industrial Motor Controls from 9:00
a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 19. Learn to connect
variable frequency drives, do basic programming and
operation of variable frequency drives, install motors
starting and reversing systems, calculate fuse and heater
size requirements for industrial motors, and troubleshoot
industrial motor controls.
Each of the workshops earns five contact hours.
Ken Warfield, associate professor of Electromechanical
Engineering Technology at Shawnee State University is the
instructor for the workshops. He has more than twenty years
of teaching experience and more than ten years of industrial
experience in electrical, mechanical, water & wastewater
fields. He is experienced in the operations, maintenance,
and management of EPA governed treatment facilities.
Warfield designed the SSU environmental Engineering
Technology degree program. Contact him at email@example.com.
