Motors are the workhorse of industrial, building and commercial electrical power systems. This course combines theoretical and practical considerations and aspects of operational principles of motors, their types, selection, testing, maintenance and troubleshooting. The course emphasizes motor’s operational performance characteristics and electrical properties. The discussion is based on the latest IEEE and NEMA Standards governing motors and applications.
To provide a comprehensive understanding of principles of operation, types, selection, testing and commissioning, protection, maintenance and troubleshooting of AC electric motors.
Electrical professionals who need to refresh and expand their knowledge, maintenance managers, and power system consultants. A basic understanding of electrical system operations is needed, but participant do not necessarily have to be experts in the areas covered. In addition, professionals who are starting their career in the field of power in electrical utilities, industrial or commercial and institutional facilities will profit from this course.

is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Dalhousie University and was Associate Dean of Engineering between 1995 and 2007. His technical contributions cover more than forty years of sustained work in research, education and service to the community. On the research side, Dr. El-Hawary pioneered in computational solutions for economic operation of power systems including hydro-thermal systems. His fundamental and pioneering work on economic operation of power systems, the application of computational intelligence techniques to power system operational problems is frequently referred to by the users community, and is documented in ten textbooks and research monographs and more than 300 research articles.
He served as IEEE Canada President (2002-2003,) and Secretary of IEEE (2004-2005) and the Awards Board and Fellows Committee. Moreover, he served as IEEE Canada Awards Chair.
Dr. El-Hawary serves currently as a member of the 2010 Publications Services and Products Board, and is IEEE Press Power Engineering Series Editor. He served as Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Press in 2006-2007. He is Founding Editor, Power Letters, Power Engineering Society, is Associate Editor for the three major Electric Machines and Power Systems' Journals, and is Editor, Electrical Power Engineering, McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology
Dr. El-Hawary received numerous awards and recognitions including the McNaughton medal and is a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and the Engineering Institute of Canada.
