From the creators of Doble Engineering’s renowned "Life of a Transformer" Seminar, Doble Engineered Strategies (DES) has announced the new "Revolutionary Machines" Seminar. This seminar focuses exclusively on electric motors and generators. This newest addition to Doble’s educational seminars will be held Nov. 5–8, 2007 at the Westin Diplomat in Hollywood, Florida.
"Revolutionary Machines" is the first comprehensive seminar to look at design, construction, application, operation, protection, failure modes and repair of large motors and generators. This seminar also covers synchronous and induction motors, rotors and stators. "In the five years we’ve been offering the ‘Life of a Transformer’ Seminar I have been repeatedly asked to provide similar training on generators and motors," said Richard Ladroga, manager of business development for DES. "This new seminar directly addresses the industry’s critical need for vital knowledge to be passed along to a target audience ranging from veteran experts to new engineers." More than 20 rotating machinery experts will present their knowledge with presentations and discussions focusing on topics such as new equipment and repair specifications, applications, operational limits, failure modes, risk management, diagnostic testing, repair techniques and scheduling maintenance. Delegates can earn up to 3.2 Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) for attending the entire week. The cost for the four day seminar is $1,350 per person, which includes breakfasts and lunches.
