This module deals with the study of electric motors (AC and DC) and the associated control circuits. It also includes an understanding and practical use of programmable controllers and variable frequency drives. Troubleshooting and design of motor control circuits are also given emphasis. Laboratory activities are provided to verify and practice learned principles.
The participant must be at least a fifth year student of Electrical Engineering/Mechanical Engineering or
Should have a prior knowledge on electrical principles.
Upon completion of the module, the participants must be able to:
1. Connect electric circuits and machines using a diagram;
2. Troubleshoot electrical control circuits; and,
3. Design motor control circuits.
