New Course Teaches Technicians to Find and Solve PQ Problems

Fluke Corporation has collaborated with American Trainco to offer a professional training opportunity important for anyone responsible for electrical system installation, maintenance and troubleshooting in commercial and industrial facilities. The course, Using the Fluke 435 Power Quality Analyzer for Solving Power Quality Problems, will teach attendees what power quality means, why it is critical for successful facility operation and how to use the Fluke 435 to identify power quality problems.

Power quality often is invisible and overlooked, but estimates put power quality-related losses at more than $80 billion per year in the United States. Power quality-related downtime can cost more than $5 million per hour in industrial facilities and credit card data centers.

Professionals who will benefit from this seminar include plant electricians, facility maintenance personnel, building engineers, plant and facility managers, HVAC technicians and energy management personnel and electrical contractors.

The first day teaches students what power quality is, how it can be monitored, and the effect it can have on equipment and maintenance operations.

On day two, students will apply what they have learned using the Fluke 435 on an actual three-phase circuit. They will learn how to set it up, which modes are available, how to read the various charts, graphs and reports, and how to use this information to improve performance of systems and equipment.

The course will be presented in White Plains, N.Y., on Monday and Tuesday, June 23–24, 2008, and in Philadelphia on Wednesday and Thursday, June 25–26, 2008. Tuition

for the two-day course (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day) is $985. To register, call 1.877.97.TRAIN or visit
