PSPE Valley Forge Chapter – Replacement of Arch Tram MG Sets with Variable Frequency Drives at the Gateway Arch
October 23, 2019 @ 5:45 pm - 8:30 pm
Get a behind-the-scenes look at the Gateway Arch, and discover how 50-year-old arch trams that take visitors to its observation deck 630 feet above the ground have been updated with 21st century technology. Learn how site-related challenges were overcome with synergetic team building measures. We will describe the justifications for replacing the trams’ motor-generator (MG) sets and DC motors with variable-frequency drives and AC motors. Over the course of this session, we will discuss design and engineering challenges associated with this complex project, and the creative solutions that were implemented. Get 1.0 professional development hour (PDH) pre-approved for NY.
