What is the most common electric motor type in the world? The 3-phase induction motor! It’s used in many machines ranging from washing machines to large power station cooling pumps. But why? What makes this type of motor so robust and suitable for such a wide range of applications?
In this course, you will get the answers to all of these questions and many more! You will learn the history of how the induction motor was developed; Why we use electric motors for so many applications and what voltage, current, resistance and frequency are. We will look at how induction motors work; what single-phase and three-phase power are; what Coulombs are and the fundamentals concerning magnets, magnetism & electromagnetism.
We will also explore Faraday's and Lenz's law, all of an induction motor’s parts, including the rotor, stator, bearings, terminal box, frame, etc. How to read a motor nameplate, maintenance associated with an induction motor, and more!
This course is designed to help you build your electrical engineering knowledge from the ground up within a short period of time. Even if you have been working within the engineering industry for a while, this course will be an excellent refresher.
