Electrical Engineering Basics
About the Program
Electricity is everywhere — no steel mill operates without it. Everything from the coffee pot to the lights to the massive surge of energy to melt in the electric arc furnace. This course is designed for those who would like to have a basic knowledge of electrical engineering principles as applied in the steel industry. Attendees will gain a fundamental basis for applying these principles in their everyday work — the terminology, the application, the physical equipment, designs, process controls and automation. The relationship of hardware and controls will be highlighted, and much more.
Automation and control are needed to operate lines optimally. This program will explore power distribution, protective relaying, transformers, breakers, level 1/level 2 automation, sensors, gauges, drives and motors. Attendees will leave this course with a better understanding of electrical engineering basics as explained by mill personnel. Panel discussions will provide an opportunity to discuss issues and engage in problem-solving. Networking sessions will allow for conversations with mill experts.
Who Should Attend
Anyone who would like to expand their knowledge and understanding of basic knowledge of electrical engineering principles as applied in the steel industry should attend. This includes electrical, mechanical, lubrication and metallurgical engineers; maintenance personnel; and operators.
