Why Attend This Training Course?
Techniques collectively referred to as Condition Monitoring have a common objective of indicating early signs of deterioration or malfunction in plant machinery through surveillance testing and analysis. Condition Monitoring helps reduce the possibility of catastrophic failures, increasing safety and machine performance. Through Vibration analysis machinery operation can be improved to an optimum level that can often exceed original equipment manufacturers specifications. There are many faults that cause machine failure, all are detectable and most are preventable. The most common causes of failure that can be identified are Bearing failure, Unbalance, Misalignment, Looseness, Bent shaft, and all other electrical and mechanical problems.

What Is The Training Course Methodology?
This training methodology illustrates the concepts involved in the above areas through practical consideration of actual real-life problems, as well as explanation of concepts by experts in area using video projectors and computer aided case studies based on practical applications. Participants will solve their system problem, where the trainee’s try to apply the skills learnt with guidance from our specialized experts. ACAD will provide participants a comprehensive assessment on the problems solved using the skills acquired in the training course.

Who Should Attend This Training Course?
This training course is designed for Utility Electrical Engineers, Consulting Engineers, and Faculties and Research Practitioners.
