Mike Bailey, The Auto Prof. Electric Compressor System Trainer

Join us at the MACS Headquarters in Lansdale, PA on Saturday, October 7th, for an in-depth class on Electric Compressor Systems with hands-on training led by industry leader Mike Bailey, The Auto Prof. This comprehensive training session will cover everything you need to know about safe service and best practices when dealing with electric compressor systems, specifically in hybrid and electric vehicles.

When working with high-voltage electric compressor systems, it’s imperative to always prioritize safety. The course will begin with an emphasis on safety measures and the necessary equipment and procedures to ensure your well-being.

An Inside Look

While attending Mike Bailey’s workshop, expect to learn about the specific personal protective equipment (PPE) required when working with high-voltage systems. Discover the specialized tools and equipment needed for HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) service in hybrid and electric vehicles. Understand and implement shop safety procedures crucial for preventing accidents.

Grasp the key differences between AC and DC power, as well as the safety considerations associated with them. This will be essential to understanding high-voltage systems. Delve into the intricacies of hybrid and electric vehicle batteries. Learn about their construction, how to handle them safely, and what precautions to take during service or repair.

But Wait, There’s More…

Discover the importance of the main disconnect and the “safe-down” procedure for de-energizing high-voltage systems before performing any service work. Gain insights into the various components that make up hybrid and electric vehicle systems. Learn about the traction battery module, a critical component in electric vehicles that stores and delivers high-voltage power to the electric motor. Explore the power distribution systems and high-voltage wiring within hybrid and electric vehicles.

Understand the interlock circuits that ensure safety by preventing specific actions when the vehicle is in operation or during service. Get to know the onboard charger and its role in charging the vehicle’s high-voltage battery from external power sources. Learn about key components such as the DC/DC converter, inverters, and electric motors and their functions in hybrid and electric vehicles. Plus much more regarding 3-phase motor operations, compressor control inverters, on/off vehicle testing, and more!
