Join us for an in depth class and Hands on training on Electric Compressor Systems Safe Service and Best Practices on Saturday, October 7th.
Safety is a top priority in any service environment,
particularly when dealing with high-voltage systems. We will extensively cover
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) requirements and the specific shop
equipment necessary for HVAC service, as well as the additional equipment
needed for complete Hybrid/EV service. Moreover, we will emphasize shop safety
procedures and items to ensure safe Hybrid/EV service practices.
Understanding high voltage is crucial for working with
Hybrid/EV systems. We will discuss the differences between alternating current
(AC) and direct current (DC) and explore the safety measures associated with
them. Participants will gain insight into the varying voltage levels present in
Hybrid/EV systems and learn about battery construction and safety, capacitors,
as well as the Main Disconnect and "Safe-Down" procedures. To gain a comprehensive understanding of Hybrid/EV vehicles,
we will explain the various components present in these systems. Participants
will learn about the Traction Battery Module, Power Distribution, High Voltage
Wiring, Interlock Circuits, Onboard Chargers (Level 1 and 2), DC/DC Converter,
Inverters, Motors, and HVAC systems.
Electric compressors play a significant role in Hybrid/EV
vehicles, and we will explore their 3-Phase Motor Operation, Compressor Control
Inverters, and On/Off Vehicle Testing. Special service considerations related
to Electric Compressors will also be covered. Thermal management is a critical aspect of Hybrid/EV
vehicles, and we will discuss various systems involved, including Battery
Cooling, Chillers, Heat Pumps, and overall Thermal Management Systems.
Throughout the workshop, active participation and engagement
are encouraged, as we believe interactive learning enhances comprehension and
retention. Let's embark on this learning journey together and make the most of
this valuable training opportunity!
