Three workshops are being offered at Shawnee State University for water and wastewater personnel beginning Friday, Jan. 20.
The first class will be Wastewater Math (EV-9991.1) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Jan. 20. Learn to solve mathematical problems associated with the operation and design of waste water treatment facilities. Course topics include detention time, flow rate, removal efficiency, hydraulic loading, SVI, BOD loading and removal, sludge age, sample volumes, chlorine demand, dose, and feed rates, D.O. saturation, pump capacity, digestion time, sludge application rates, oxygen uptake rates, motor HP, tank size & volumes. Class includes a one-hour practice exam and offers 5.25 contact hours.
The second workshop is three-phase Induction Motors and Controls (ETEM 1514.6) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 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 workshop earns participants 5.25 contact hours.
The third workshop is Industrial Motor Controls (ETEM 1514.10) from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Friday, March 16. 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. The workshop earns participants 5.25 contact hours.
Ken Warfield, associate professor of Electromechanical Engineering Technology at Shawnee State University is the instructor for the workshops. He has nearly 30 years of teaching experience and more than 10 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.
