Wound Rotor Motor Training | Hands-On Electric Motor Skills

Learning System: 85-MT2D

Amatrol’s Wound Rotor Motor Learning System (85-MT2D) covers the function, operation, and performance characteristics of wound rotor motors. While variable frequency drives (VFDs) and standard induction motors have replaced wound rotor motors in many applications, these motors are still used for heavy-duty, high torque applications such as industrial cranes and hoists. Amatrol’s wound rotor motor training system requires the Basic Electrical Machines Learning System (85-MT2) for use.

Wound rotor motor training includes a wound rotor speed controller, a wound rotor motor, banana leads, in-depth multimedia curriculum, an installation guide, and a student reference guide. These components will be used to study topics such as wound rotor speed control, performance characteristics, and motor reversing. Amatrol systems feature real-world, industrial-grade components for both durability and to facilitate learners in gaining hands-on practice with actual equipment that they’ll find in the field.

Learning Topics

  • Installation & Operation of Wound Rotor Motors
  • Motor Reversing
  • Speed Controllers
  • Performance Measurement & Analysis

Connect and Operate Industrial-Grade Wound Rotor Motors

Amatrol’s wound rotor motor training system includes a wound rotor speed controller with a three-phase rheostat and three 5-amp circuit breakers, a 1/3 Hp wound rotor motor, and a banana lead set. These industrial components will be used in conjunction with the basic electrical machines training system to build hands-on skills such as connecting and operating wound rotor motors and motor speed controllers, measuring motor performance characteristics, and reversing a motor’s rotation.

Electrical Machine Training Can Expand to Meet Your Ever-Changing Needs

In addition to training on the 85-MT2D, the Basic Electrical Machines Learning System (85-MT2) features additional options to expand electrical machine skill-building, including: Alternator/Synchronous Motors (85-MT2C). The alternator and synchronous motor training system includes capacitive load, combination synchronous motor/alternator, and synchronizing lights/switch unit to teach alternators and synchronous motors commonly found in industrial applications.

Interactive Wound Rotor Motor eLearning Curriculum

Amatrol's wound rotor motor training system features interactive eLearning curriculum that integrates various types of learning methods to create an engaging, effective learning experience. Amatrol’s multimedia eLearning curriculum includes text with voiceovers, videos, 3D animations, pictures, and interactive activities, quizzes, and self-reviews. Specific wound rotor motor topics covered include: the function and operation of wound rotor motors; speed controllers; torque and speed characteristics of wound rotor motors; and how to reverse rotation of a wound rotor motor. Within these topics, learners will study objectives like connecting and operating a wound rotor motor; connecting and operating a wound rotor motor speed controller; measuring wound rotor motor performance characteristics; and reversing the rotation of a wound rotor motor.

Free Learning Management System (LMS)

Amatrol eLearning is easy-to-use for both students and instructors. Its web-based interface is simple to navigate and available on any WebGL-compatible Internet browser. Instructors love Amatrol eLearning for its simple, yet sophisticated Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS allows instructors to create custom courses, monitor student participation, track course progress, assess knowledge levels prior to a course, and test knowledge levels after completion. Learners appreciate the fact that they can start and stop as needed, moving through each Amatrol course at their own pace. If a self-review reveals that they didn’t understand a particular topic as well as they thought they did, they can revisit it before moving on.

Expand Your Electrical Motors Training | 85-MT2 Expansion Systems

Amatrol's Basic Electrical Machines Learning System provides a solid foundation to build upon by adding a variety of optional expansion systems to teach additional skills related to

DC generators, alternator/synchronous motors, wound rotor motors, and electrical motor troubleshooting. All of these expansion systems include Amatrol's interactive eLearning.
