Variable Frequency Drives Training Workshop

April 26, 2017– Abhisam is pleased to announce a practical cum theory training workshop on AC Variable Frequency Drives at their Thane training center in Thane, India. The workshop will include both the theory and practical applications involving this technology. Led by industry experts with decades of experience in engineering, installation and maintenance of these systems, this is an opportunity not to be missed at all! The batch size is restricted to only 15 participants, on a first come first served basis. It will be conducted over two days in May 2017. Please contact sales@abhisam.com to enroll.

Known by alternate names such as Variable Speed Drives and Inverter Drives, this technology has become very popular, but there is a lot of knowledge gap between the state of the art today and what is taught as part of courses/curriculums at the college/university level. Engineers and technicians today need to understand not only how these VFDs work, they must also be able to do the following

  • Understand the unique characteristics of the  type of load (maybe pumps, fans, blowers, conveyors, hoists, belts and so on)
  • Understand which AC Motor and Drive combination can work best for the application
  • Make specifications and/or understand specifications made by the client/user
  • Select the most suitable drive based on above
  • Plan the control architecture, panel layout, functionality of the drive and input/output of the power and signal cables, connect the drive to other industrial systems like SCADA or PLC/DCS via Serial or MODBUS interfaces
  • Install and correctly configure the drive (parameterization)
  • Commission the drive
  • Troubleshoot problems

This one of a kind workshop will enable the participant to do all this and more!

Sold Out! Hazardous Area Training Workshop in India Mumbai

Aug 9 , 2016- Abhisam’s Hazardous Area Workshop was held successfully on 5th and 6th Aug 2016 at Hotel Kohinoor Continental, Andheri, Mumbai. It was sold out a good two weeks before the start date! If you could not register for this one, look out for the next one that should take place in the next few months. The program was attended by engineers from Thyssenkrupp (UHDE), Siemens, L & T  & others.

The workshop consisted of two programs, Program 1 (on 5th Aug 2016) covered Basic Concepts of flammability and explosivity of various materials, need for classification, area classification, material and temperature classification, how to designate Zones, practical exercises in marking these areas on plant layouts, things to consider including potential release points as well as quantities of materials released. It also covered a much neglected topic in the hazardous area field, namely dust explosions.

Program 2 (on 6th Aug 2016) covered the Basic Concepts of protection including various techniques such as Explosion proof, Flameproof, Intrinsic Safety, Non incendive and others, selection of equipment in new plants, maintenance of explosion protected equipment in plants, marking and labelling, differences in the various certifications such as ATEX versus IEC Ex. The session also included a Question and Answer session that was eminently conducted by Dr. B. K. Gupta, who has more than three decades of experience in the area of explosion protection and also a member of various standards committees that develop standards related to explosion protection. Typical questions answered were:

a) How does one test an explosionproof junction box?

b) Can one drill extra holes in such explosionproof Junction Boxes?

c) What should be the inspection frequency of explosion protected equipment?

d) How is Dust Ignition Proof protection different from Explosionproof protection?

e) What are the differences in ATEX Certification and IEC Ex?

f) Do ATEX certificates expire?

and many more. If you would also like to find the answers to these questions, then please sign up for the next such program OR download our Hazardous Area training course XPRTU software.
