MOTOR CIRCUIT COMPONENTS

Learning Labs

Motor Circuit Components is Simutech Multimedia’s fourth learning lab. In this lab, your professionals will learn about motors circuits and their components, including the possible causes for motor failure (both mechanical and circuit failures). After the successful conclusion of this learning lab, they will have access to the third simulation level, Troubleshooting Motor Circuits (TMC), which challenges trainees at all expertise levels with multiple degrees of fault difficulty.

Simutech’s learning labs provide a realistic simulated lab environment and the tools to learn and practice electrical troubleshooting, plus:

=
Demonstrations, hands-on labs, and continuous performance measurement
=
Step-by-step guides to help users apply new problem-solving techniques
=
Printable resources including circuit diagrams, schematics, and worksheets

What is Covered

MOTOR WINDINGS

This section will teach your professionals to differentiate between Wye and Delta wiring configurations and prepare them to calculate expected winding resistance values.

MOTOR BEHAVIOR

A three-phase squirrel cage motor is the main focus for this lab, which explains starting characteristics such as current and the speed/current/time relationship. This lab also contains interactive exercises that explore different levels of load.

MOTOR COMPONENTS

This section explores the parts of a motor circuit in an interactive lab environment that will teach your professionals how the components work under normal operating conditions, and how they fail.

DETERMINING CAUSES OF FAILURE

This section covers the causes of failure in motor circuits, including mechanical failures in the motor itself as well as failures in the circuitry leading to the motor. It includes mechanical problems in the load, opens and shorts in motor power circuits, defective motors, and malfunctions in the control circuit.

Benefits

Increased Retention

Hands-on activities dramatically increase knowledge retention.

Increased Safe Practice skills

Learning Labs provide an environment where trainees receive instant notification when safety errors occur.

Increased Engagement

3D animation, instant feedback, and adaptive learning serve to keep learners engaged.

Learning Schedule Flexibility

Employees can learn at their own pace, according to their unique learning needs.

Troubleshooting Skill Reinforcement

Practice makes perfect! Extra practice troubleshooting in life-like scenarios ensures learners develop the skills needed before working on live equipment.

Convenient Access

The key advantage of Learning Labs is that modules can be accessed anytime, anywhere from a laptop or desktop.
