Description:

Tutorial / education on how measurement of motor current can tell you about not just electrical phenomena, but about electrical, mechanical, operational and energy efficiency, in the motor, transmission, driven machine and electrical supply system. This webinar will explain what conventional MCSA systems did and how they work, and explain how newer technologies such as Model-Based Voltage and Current (MBVI) systems effectively use the motor as a sensor, detecting torsional vibration signals. It will explore the similarities and differences between the outputs of MBVI systems vs conventional Vibration Monitoring systems, and the situations in which each technique has advantages and disadvantages.

Learning Takeaways:

1) What MBVI systems are and how they work

2) That MBVI systems are effectively a form of vibration monitoring that uses the motor as a sensor

3) How MBVI systems are similar to, and complementary with conventional Vibration Monitoring systems

4) What MBVI systems can tell you that conventional vibration monitoring or conventional MCSA can’t.

About the Presenter

Geoff Walker, Operations Director of Faraday Predictive Ltd, is a Mechanical Engineer with a focus on the Optimisation of Maintenance Strategy. He spent the first decade+ of his career working in the Chemicals industry, working with toxic, flammable and corrosive materials and many other things that all challenged the reliable performance of equipment. It was in this environment that he was first exposed to Condition Monitoring and RCM, and where he first encountered how the current drawn by an electric motor can be used to diagnose mechanical problems of inaccessible equipment.
