ESA Advanced Training

In this course, we introduce you to Motor Circuit Analysis (MCA) and Electrical Signature Analysis (ESA/MCSA) as different condition verification technologies for electric rotating machinery.

After a con­textual introduction of the nowadays maintenance strategies and condition monitoring techniques, the generalized electric machine topologies and their corresponding working principles are discussed. Next, the propagation of the most common mechanical and electrical machine failures are eluci­dated with the focus on differentiating direct and indirect modes. Several basic and advanced techniques are presented on how the condition-indicating patterns and parameters can be ex­tracted out of the electrical signals.

The teachers’ experience enables a pragmatic interpretation of the theoretical fundamentals, fully driven by industrial cases and animated visuals. As closure, the gained theoreti­cal and practical insights are applied on several industrial case studies. At the end of the course, the training participant will be able to measure, visualize and interpret a current signal in order to obtain the basic overall condition of an electric machine.
