Electric Motor Training & Testing Center

The University of Wyoming Electric Motor Training & Testing Center (UWEMTTC) was established in 1991. Originally funded by the US Department of Energy, the State of Wyoming Energy Office and the Nicholson Foundation, the UWEMTTC has participated in various energy-related projects throughout the state of Wyoming and across the country.

The Motor Testing Lab consists of two dynamometers, several motor-generator sets, and a power distribution system capable of testing electric machines of up to 250 Horsepower. We also have the ingenuity and flexibility to test many other types of electrical machines, including wind generators, electric vehicle motors, DC motors, linear electric motors, and most types of electrical drives. Our high-bay garage door allows us to bring vehicles, trailers, or other large equipment into the lab for testing.

In addition to our in-house testing facility, the MTTC can also perform many different electrical tests and projects in the field, including energy audits and power quality studies. Training and workshops for engineers and field personnel are also available.

Please contact the WEMTTC for any electrical power-related questions you may have. Our faculty, staff, and students are ready to help you.

Did you know:

Electric Motors consume up to 50% of all electrical power generated worldwide, and, in an industrial facility, may account for up 90% of the electricity consumed. Significant energy savings potential exists through the use of energy-efficient electric motors, properly sizing existing motors, and effective process control.
