What you’ll learn
Learn the fundamental parts of industrial control boards and how they work.
Learn how to install, wire and commission a basic motor control installation from scratch.
Learn how to fault find, repair and maintain a basic motor control systems.
Learn how electrical control components work and how to wire them up.
Some prior knowledge of electrical circuits would help but it’s not critical.
This course is an introduction to electrical controls with an emphasis on motor controls in the real world.
In this course, we focus on industrial and commercial installations, we will start with the absolute basics of electrical circuits. We look at the fundamentals of resistive circuits, and introduce Ohms Law, a mathematical formula that all electricians learn. The course looks at the different types of voltages and where they come from in the real world, focussing on transformer formations from the power supply authority, and AC and DC Voltages. As this is a course on the fundamentals of electrical controls, we will go through the basics of control circuits such as, normally open and normally closed, and look at how controls are made up of series and parallel circuits.
Taking a more practical approach to the subject, we dive inside control panels and look at each electrical component that we will be using later in the course, in our own motor control installation. We look inside the parts in detail and see how they work, discuss ratings, and learn how to size them up, with a particular focus on contactors and overloads. We also simplify an explanation of how an asynchronous motor works.
Before we get to wiring up our own control circuit, we look at the different types of control voltages in the real world and follow them from end device at the customers installation all the way back to the supply transformer at the power company, so we can see how a full installation might look, and get an insigh
t into different systems that we might find in industry.
