Day 1 - Electrical Circuits & Diagrams

This Hands-On training will provide an introduction to electricity and common electrical circuits used in HVAC. Each participant will measure voltage, current, and resistance on a project they wire from basic diagrams and schematics provided. The Instructor will explain the use of OEM diagrams and various test instruments. Low voltage wiring requirements and basic troubleshooting measurements will be included.

Topics Covered:

  • Basic circuit components
  • Electricity and magnetism
  • Series and parallel circuits
  • Wiring diagrams and schematics
  • Performing voltage, current and resistance measurements
  • Relays and controls

Day 2 - Electrical Troubleshooting

This Hands-On course combines OEM diagrams and practical diagnostic processes to most effectively resolve any electrical breakdown. Participants will apply their knowledge using diagrams, basic circuits and live equipment; strategies for troubleshooting components and controls. Accessory devices will be provided. The primary objective of this class is to reduce downtime by expediting the diagnosis.

Topics Covered:

  • Using schematics and symbols to determine the sequence of operation
  • Troubleshooting PSC motors
  • Electronically commutated motor (X13/ECM) diagnostics
  • Grounding and circuit over-current protection
  • Electromechanical and electronic controls
