Process Line Fundamentals & Tension Analysis


Clear selection

Course Description

This course consists of subjects designed to provide an understanding of the various drives, which make up a process line and the application of electric motors, controls, and power supplies needed to satisfy their requirements. Practical application problems will be solved as part of the course.

Included in the course are discussions on DC Motors, AC Motors, Multiple Motor Drives, Bridles, Helper Drives, Generators, Thyristor Power Supplies, Variable Frequency Power Supplies, Reels, Storage Devices, Levelers, and Side Trimmers.

A practical discussion of the principles of bridle operation and the engineering required to obtain successful operation will be reviewed. An in depth discussion of reels, their components, and their operation on various types of process lines will be presented.

Tension Analysis calculations of a typical line will be discussed including how to calculate and handle bending and friction losses. During this course, students are encouraged to bring up particular problems for analysis.
