TAPPI IEEE Paper Machine Drives Course
TAPPI IEEE Paper Machine Drives Course
Jacksonville, Florida USA
Thursday, June 27, 2019 to Friday, June 28, 2019
Presented in conjunction with the 2019 IEEE Pulp and Paper Technical Conference
IEEE Pulp, Paper and Forest Industry Local Conference Committee is pleased to offer a tutorial session focused on one of the industry’s most important technical subjects - Paper Machine Drives.
This course will aid in your understanding of the selection, operation, troubleshooting, and maintenance of all paper machine drive systems, ac or dc.
Taught by paper machine drive engineers, all of whom have had many years of experience in drives on the paper machine, this course will help you understand:
- Power demand calculations
- Drive configurations for the sections
- Detail application of ac drives
- Analysis of problems
- Troubleshooting techniques
- Proper installation techniques
- Identifying the “gotchas” before they get 'cha
- How to upgrade an existing drive system.
Instructors focus on delivering knowledge so that you can apply basic paper machine drives to day-to-day operations. They will provide you with the know-how to evaluate and select paper machine drives, and modern machine configurations.
Here's What You'll Learn:
- Increase your problem-solving skills through team activities and practical exercises
- Get personalized answers to specific questions and operating situations
- Learn how to use disturbance analysis for problem solving
- Achieve increased production volume due to less downtime
Who Should Attend?
- Anyone in the mill with responsibility for the drives on a paper machine
- Those who have corporate responsibility for the drives on a paper machine
- Consultants responsible for paper machine drives
- Mill/Plant Engineers
- Mill/Plant Maintenance Engineers and Lead Operators
- Application and Design Engineers (Controls and OEMs)
- Staff Engineers
- Electrical Superintendents
- Suppliers of Paper Mill Drives
What's the Word?
When asked what they'll be able to do after this course, past participants said:
"Now, I'll be able to help solve machine maintenance issues, reduce failures and improve future designs."
"I'll apply this knowledge to more effectively communicate with drive maintenance technicians."
"This course helped me look at paper machine drives for upgrades and sizing."
"I now know how to look for adequate grounding for CMC and CMV causing bearing failures."
"The curriculum taught me how to look at capabilities for speed-up."
"Learning how to troubleshoot drives is where I benefited most.”
After successfully completing this course, participants should be able to:
- Discuss the range of modern paper machinery and modern machine configurations.
- Calculate drive HP using "unit constant" or “component value” theory.
- Explain the fundamental relationships between mechanical and electrical systems and identify major application considerations of drive train components.
- Discuss AC drive selection and application, as well as installation and economic considerations of AC vs. C drives.
- Describe existing load and speed data for rebuilding a paper machine and evaluate data for HP selection.
- Apply the fundamentals of disturbance analysis techniques to solve problems.
- Identify considerations for specifying and applying paper machine drive speed reducers.
