Fundamentals of Electric Motor Testing

In this 2-day seminar, you’ll get a solid overview of the background and physical principles for testing electric motors. You will learn how you can achieve a greater depth in test stand measurement and thus, gain additional information for your production or development. This seminar shows the basis for developing effective test strategies, and with the help of additional physical information, will allow you to perform shorter and more secure testing on electric motors.
