Motor and Drive System Basics

Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP

Electric motors, taken together, make up the single largest end use of electricity in the United States. In industrial applications, electric motors account for roughly 60% of electricity consumption; in the process industries, electric motors account for more than 70% of electricity use. Electric motors provide efficient, reliable, long-lasting service, and most require comparatively little maintenance. Despite these advantages, however, they can be inefficient and costly to operate if they are not properly selected and maintained. Industrial plants can avoid unnecessary increases in energy consumption, maintenance, and costs, by selecting motors that are well suited to their applications and making sure that they are well maintained.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
