EPRI Motor/Generator Rewind Seminar  


This three and one-half day seminar is for specialists and non-specialists who specify, contract, and accept motor or generator repairs and rewinds. It is a unique course focusing on the art and science of medium voltage motor windings. Just about all facts of motor stator windings are offered during the three and one-half days of presentations and discussions.  The presenters, Elton Floyd and Chase Fell, as a team, present the material and facilitate discussion within the class.  The discussion provides a way to share the experience and wisdom of the attendees which greatly enhances the understanding of the material being presented.
