Voltage Training School 2019

Specialty Engineering and COOPER Power Systems presents:

Voltage Regulator School 2019


Course Descriptions

Sometimes, there’s just no substitute for digging in and getting your hands dirty. There’s also no substitute for learning from the best. So when it comes to getting the most out of using and maintaining step-voltage regulators, it just makes sense to turn to the people who design and build the best in the business: Cooper Power Systems, makers of industry-leading McGraw-Edison® Voltage Regulators.

Presented by Cooper Power Systems and Specialty Engineering, Inc., this course consists of three days of hands-on training sessions and lectures on the testing, troubleshooting and repair of voltage regulators. Participants are encouraged to share their own experiences and work with instructors to develop solutions to specific maintenance and repair problems they have encountered on the job. The class will also feature Cooper’s new CL-7 control, programing and operation.
