Designing And Commissioning Variable Speed Drives

Category: Designing And Commissioning Variable Speed Drives

Course Description

The main aim of this course is to provide the participants with basic knowledge about AC inverter drives. The participants will be able to design, parameterize and commission frequency inverters. The course will be based on SIEMENS VSDs.

Course Methodology

The course is hands on with great emphasis on the practical aspects of electrical drives. The course is based around Micro Master frequency inverter Siemens / SINAMICS.

Course Objectives

  • The course objectives are to provide the participants with the knowledge and skills to enable them to work with Siemens VSDs.
  • In this course you will learn about the interrelationships between the specified load data and the static and dynamic data of the drive. Precise calculations are supported by the SIZER engineering software and the DT Configurator.
  • After the course, you will be able to quickly and reliably engineer SINAMICS G120 drives.
