This webinar will explore control panel schematics. More specifically, we will examine what a schematic is, what it does, and the parts it represents. We will explore various electrical parts and how they work so that we understand what the schematic is telling us about the controls. We will also learn how to troubleshoot control systems using the schematic.
Nevin Bretz is a graduate of Southeastern Louisiana University, Hammond, Louisiana. He is currently a Project Manager for commercial wastewater treatment solutions for Delta Treatment Systems. He devoted almost 15 years designing control panels for the water, wastewater, and oil and gas markets at a panel shop in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. During that time, he has become fluent in troubleshooting and startups from simple pump stations to entire water/wastewater plants. That knowledge and experience along with a proficiency in instrumentation carried over to Pipe Tech where Nevin obtained certifications in training classes on electric motor operators, controls, and valves. Using a combination of high speed pressure analyzers and KY Pipe software, Nevin studied hydraulic pressure transients and how to solve water hammer problems. From there, Nevin spent several years at Delta Process Equipment (a DXP company) performing startups, training, and troubleshooting on municipal and industrial equipment. He became fluent in centrifugal air compressors from 400HP to 2,000HP.More Webinars
