Series Motor Runaway (Screencast)
Learners consider the changes inside a series motor that could cause it to break apart if the load was disconnected. A quiz completes the activity.
In this simulation activity, an electrician will troubleshoot an AC motor that quit running and cannot be restarted. Before accessing blueprints and then using a multimeter to find the fault, the learner will follow safety protocols by following lock-out tag-out procedures and then suit up with appropriate (PPE) personal protection equipment.
