PRESS RELEASE : Learn to find and solve costly power quality problems with Fluke

Everett, Wash. - Fluke Corporation has collaborated with American Trainco to offer a professional training opportunity important for anyone responsible for electrical system installation, maintenance and troubleshooting in commercial and industrial facilities.

The course, Using the Fluke 435 Power Quality Analyzer for Solving Power Quality Problems, will teach attendees what power quality means, why it is critical for successful facility operation, and how to use the Fluke 435 to identify power quality problems.

Power quality is often invisible and overlooked, but estimates put power quality-related losses at more than $80 billion per year in the United States. Power quality-related downtime can cost more than $5 million per hour in industrial facilities and credit card data centers. This course provides the knowledge to manage power quality and delivers hands-on practice using the Fluke 435 3-Phase Power Quality Analyzer.

This course is designed for anyone responsible for electrical system installation, maintenance and troubleshooting in commercial and industrial facilities. Professionals who will benefit from this seminar include plant electricians, facility maintenance personnel, building engineers, plant and facility managers, HVAC technicians and energy management personnel and electrical contractors.

The first day of this seminar will concentrate on teaching the student what power quality is, how it can be monitored, and the effect it can have on equipment and maintenance operations. Students will have a clear understanding of why it is important to monitor power quality and how proper management of power quality can save a plant or facility tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.

In the second day, students will apply what they have learned in a hands-on session using the Fluke 435 Logging Power Quality Analyzer on an actual three-phase circuit. They will learn how to set the analyzer up, what different modes are available, how to read the various charts, graphs and reports, and how to use this information to improve performance of systems and equipment. Students will receive a solid education on power quality and an introduction to real-world tools that will help them apply their knowledge the moment they get back to work.

The course will be presented in Los Angeles on June 9-10, in White Plains, N.Y. on June 23-24 and in Philadelphia on June 25-26, 2008.

Tuition for the two-day course (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day) is $985. To register for the course Using the Fluke 435 Power Quality Analyzer for Solving Power Quality Problems, call 1-877-97-TRAIN or visit: https://www.americantrainco.com.
