Electricity for Mechanicals


The thorny issue of communication in organisations has been the subject of much debate. One of the primary objectives of this course is to bridge the gap between the mechanical aspects of rotating equipment in general, and pumps in particular, and the electrical requirements of the system.

The successful long-term operation of an installation requires a co-ordinated effort on the part of the project design, installation and operating teams. Electricity for non electrical practitioners will give mechanical engineering staff the knowledge and skills to effectively communicate with those individuals charged with responsibility for providing an appropriate electrical energy supply and control equipment.

Delegates will be able to:

  • Describe the electromagnetism phenomenon and it’s practical application in the products and services offered by the company
  • Detail how single and three phase electricity is generated
  • Give a basic overview of the common voltages used in the distribution and application of electrical energy in South Africa
  • Explain the operating principle of an induction eletric motor, both single and three phase
  • Detail the construction of an induction electric motor
  • Give a description of the relationship between amps, volts, ohms and kilowatts
  • Describe the operating principle of a single phase control panel
  • Give a description of how a basic three phase panel functions
  • Give a details of the purpose and operating principles of 5 commonly used protection and control relays.
  • Select cable from a selection chart, given the current absorbed by the motor and the length of cabling required
  • Measure the amps and volts in a operational pumping system
  • Measure the winding and insulation resistance in a electric motor
  • Do fault diagnosis and offer suggestions with regard to corrective actions

Please Note:
The precise content may change on the day depending on the specific needs of the delegates.
