New ABB training courses bring you up to date with variable-speed drive technology

ABB has created a new set of training courses aimed at bringing consultants, contractors and other users up to date with the latest developments in variable speed drive technology.


Advances in variable-speed drive technology (VSDs) could mean that specifications used by water industry consultants or contractors are out of date. ABB's variable-speed drive training courses provide comprehensive guidance on the latest developments in the technology, covering everything from the basics of AC drives through to more complex topics such as harmonics and power factor correction.

The courses are aimed at anyone involved in the specification, installation, operation and maintenance of variable-speed drives, including C&I engineers, maintenance engineers, electrical engineers, asset managers or those responsible for the upkeep, maintenance and electrical design of VSDs.

The courses explain how using variable-speed drives can help improve process efficiency, reduce energy and lower carbon dioxide emissions.

There are no prerequisites for the training, although a basic understanding of electrical installations and some experience of an industrial environment would be an advantage.

The courses are offered in two formats. Face to face 'Lunch and Learn' sessions last from 20 to 60 minutes and can be presented at a user's premises or an ABB facility. Alternatively, users can elect to do training in their own time, with a series of e-learning courses also available.
