TRAINING

The training programs of ORBITS focusses on a thorough transition of knowledge in the first place. We teach on a broad range of topics related to both electrical and mechanical engineering with a special focus on condition monitoring, Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA), Failure Mode Effect and Criticality Analysis (FMECA), Electrical Signature Analysis (ESA/MCSA) and vibration analysis.

Our standardized courses on ESA/MCSA and vibration analysis are adaptable for a wide range of audience background with small tuning of the learning goals. All courses include a slidebook and digital slides/animations. Contact us for internal company trainings or take a look at our calendar for upcoming public events!

TRAINING CALENDAR

BASIC ESA TRAINING (1 day)

In this course, we introduce you to Electrical Signature Analysis (ESA/MCSA) as a condition mon­itoring technology for electric rotating machinery.

After a brief introduction of the current mainte­nance strategies and condition monitoring techniques, the generalized electric machine topologies and their working principles are discussed. Next, the propagation of the most common mechanical and electrical machine failures are elucidated. Several 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. At the end of the day, the training participant will be able understand the context, the strengths and the weaknesses of ESA and interpret a basic MCSA diagnostic report.

ADVANCED ESA TRAINING (2 days)

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.

Operational Deflection Shape & Modal Analysis training (1 day)

In this course, we focus on the dynamic behavior of a mechanical system. The start of this training day is focusing on the definitions and terms related to mechanical dynamic systems e.g. mass, spring, damper, resonance, forces, vibrations… This to easy the understanding during the training.

After scoping the definition of resonance, we put the focus on estimating resonance areas following several practical techniques (bump-test, run-up/coast-down, impacting…). Additionally, several methods in order to solve any resonance-related issues are elucidated and discussed in detail. 

The last two sessions are fully focused on the theoretics and practices on Operation Deflection Shape analysis (ODS), Operational and Experimental Modal Analysis (OMA, EMA). Both the mathematics as how to translate this in the industry are discussed and demonstrated. These sessions are closed by showing some industrial examples and practical outcomes.
