WS7: 1/2 Day Hands-on Workshop: Optimizing Benefits Of Predictive Maintenance: Concepts Of Signal Processing And MCSA/VFD

Suri Ganeriwala, President


This unique workshop will provide attendees with the fundamental principles of the three distinct elements of your predictive maintenance program: signal processing, MCSA (motor current signal analysis), and interference of VFD (variable frequency drives) in the data analysis. The presentation will begin with explaining digital signal processing in a simplified manner. Students will learn how to utilize their existing vibration analysis tools to extract the maximum information from the vibration and motor current signals. The benefits will include how to determine the sampling rate, resolution, max frequency, and how to distinguish if you are missing a frequency component in your selected resolution, etc. A description of the essential physics of induction motors and the VFDs to maximize the benefits of your condition-based maintenance program will be provided. Students will learn to maximize the benefits of you existing predictive maintenance program.
