Motor Controls

Motor Controls DVD Package

The textbook explains how to read and understand basic motor control schematics. It helps students understand the equipment represented by the symbols in the schematics, and how motor controls are used in practical applications. It also contains many NEC requirements for the disconnecting means, controllers, wiring methods used to install the control wiring, the installation of equipment enclosures, and the overcurrent protection for the conductors, and the equipment being installed. The DVDs enhance the learning experience.


Motor Controls textbook

The study of motor controls is an extensive and complicated subject. This textbook is designed to provide a foundation for students who are just beginning to learn about motor controls. It can also be helpful for journeyman and master exam preparation.

Power Quality

Power Quality DVD Package

Today's electronic technology requires power that is sufficiently free of voltage and current disturbance so as not to cause undue energy waste or heating of supplied equipment. This DVD package provides the foundation necessary to understand the power quality and reliability issues and solutions, causes of harmonic problems, which solution(s) to apply, and when to call an expert.


Power Quality textbook

This textbook provides the foundation necessary to understand the basics of power quality, why it is important, and what factors degrade it. Distribution systems which are properly designed and installed should provide safe clean power, which reduces operating costs, minimizes maintenance issues, and improves the bottom line for a business. It covers:

electrical theory • alternating current • neutral conductor • harmonics • voltage disturbances • voltage window • electrical noise • grounding and bonding • power quality issues
