Three-Phase Electrical Training Course:

I have designed this course for Yesway Ltd, who will offer it.

What you will learn.

Module 1: Introduction to Three-Phase Electricity

  • Basic principles of three-phase electricity
  • Comparison to single-phase electricity
  • Advantages and disadvantages of three-phase electricity
  • Phases and phase angles

Module 2: Three-Phase Power Generation

  • Three-phase generators and their components
  • Synchronous and asynchronous generators
  • Transformer basics
  • Power factor and reactive power

Module 3: Three-Phase Power Distribution

  • Three-phase power distribution systems
  • Transmission and distribution lines
  • Three-phase power transformers
  • Voltage drop and line losses

Module 4: Three-Phase Motor Theory

  • Three-phase motor basics
  • Motor components and their functions
  • Squirrel cage and wound rotor motors
  • Motor starting and speed control

Module 5: Three-Phase Motor Installation

  • Motor installation requirements
  • Motor wiring and connections
  • Motor control circuits and devices
  • Motor testing and troubleshooting

Module 6: Three-Phase Electrical Safety

  • Electrical hazards and safety precautions
  • Lockout/tagout procedures
  • Personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Electrical incident response

Module 7: Three-Phase Electrical Maintenance

  • Importance of regular maintenance
  • Motor maintenance and lubrication
  • Inspection and testing of electrical components
  • Preventive and corrective maintenance

Module 8: Three-Phase Electrical Troubleshooting

  • Troubleshooting techniques and tools
  • Common electrical faults and their causes
  • Testing and diagnosing electrical faults
  • Repair and replacement of faulty components

Module 9: Three-Phase Electrical Control Systems

  • Motor control circuit basics

  • Programmable logic controllers (PLCs)
  • Control system troubleshooting

Module 10: Advanced Three-Phase Electrical Systems

  • Variable frequency drives (VFDs)
  • Harmonics and power quality issues
  • Power factor correction
  • Renewable energy systems

In each module, students will learn the theory behind each system and then have the opportunity to apply that knowledge through practical exercises and case studies.

The course will also cover safety procedures and best practices for working with three-phase electrical systems.

By the end of the course, students should be able to understand, install, maintain, and troubleshoot a wide range of three-phase electrical systems.
