Principles of Winding is a free online course from Alison that provides learners with a solid guide in the principles and techniques of winding. Are you having difficulties understanding the construction of DC generators? Do you want to be able to quickly identify the basic components and working principles of the DC Machine? Then this course is for you! In this course, the types and circuit descriptions of DC generators will be discussed. You will also analyze the terminal identification of a DC compound motor in practical terms. Learn about some of the causes of damages to the DC machines and the rewinding of field coils as a possible solution. Learners will be taught the key tools and materials as well as the procedures to rewind the DC motor field coil. Learn about the theory, application and two major types of armature winding. Study the procedures and methods for efficient rewinding of the armature coil of a DC machine.
Furthermore, this course discusses the operating principle of induction motor and the double field revolving theory. You will learn the application of double field revolving theory in developing running torque. The procedure to identify the terminals of a single-phase induction motor will be outlined in this course. Study the requirements and procedures used in rewinding a Split Phase Type Motor. Learn about the requirements and procedures for rewinding a ceiling fan as well as a table fan. You will also explore the principles of operations of the three-phase induction motor and the production of rotating magnetic flux by three-phase currents. The identification of the terminals of a three-phase induction motor will be explained in this course. You will learn the procedures required to rewind a three-phase IM single layer wound motor and a 3-Phase IM double layer winding motor. Learn about the polarity test of the induction motor by the search coil method and the unbalanced current test method.
Lastly, the basic working principles and the terminal identification of a transformer will be covered in this course. If you seek an understanding of the procedures for rewinding the coil of a small size transformer, this course is for you. Moreso, topics such as the working principles, advantages and the phasing-out test of the 3-Phase transformer will be analyzed extensively. You will learn about the different methods available for transforming three-phase voltage to higher or lower three-phase voltages. Taking this course gives you insight into the application of the dot convention with reference to the input voltage polarity in the primary winding. Learn about the additive and subtractive polarity including the application of the right-hand thumb rule. This course will greatly benefit, students, researchers, enthusiastic engineers, engineers and all who have an interest in motor winding principles and techniques.
