Electrical Power and Controls Online Training Program (non-certification course)


*Please note, for all certification preparation training programs, an additional fee is due when submitting your certification application to take the exam.

About this Program

Energy Monitoring Systems (EMS), Building Management Systems (BMS) and Automated HVAC Systems are essential pillars of energy management and energy intensity control in most large industrial, commercial and institutional facilities. This course covers a unique combination of electrical power and controls topics applicable to these facilities. It details how instruments, gages, sensors, SCADA Systems, PLC’s, and DCS Systems are used to not only measure energy but control and conserve it.  The course materials are structured to build an energy professionals knowledge, and are illustrated and reinforced by practical applications, examples and numerical case studies. Participants are kept engaged through discussions, questions, and problem solving.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn the vital role EMS, BMS, and SCADA Systems play in measurement, monitoring, and controlling energy consumption in large facilities.
  • Understand the architecture and purpose of Automated HVAC Systems and how these systems significantly impact energy intensity in large facilities.
  • Learn how Power and Control systems work in unison to improve energy productivity in large facilities.
  • Gain a better appreciation of AC power representations in phasor, polar and rectangular forms.
  • Know the difference between three-phase AC, “Y” and “∆ -Delta” configuration of loads and sources, and their ramifications on inrush current and peak avoidance.
  • Understand how PLCs, VFD’s, SMC’s and motor starters work and how they can be used to minimize energy cost.
  • Learn how to interpret electrical power and controls drawings.
  • Discuss how to apply what you have learned to your business and applications.
