BRW: What do you hope the audience will learn from this webinar?
The goal of the webinar is for the audience to better understand what factors go into sizing the generator and why it is so important that we receive that information during the quoting stage so we can provide an accurate quote for a machine that will fit their needs.
BRW: What discussions do you look forward to having with the audience?
I look forward to talking about temperatures classes and the reactance requirements most.
BRW: What do you enjoy most about your role?
I most enjoy when a customer comes to us with a requirement that hasn’t been solved before, and I get to develop a new design that will fulfil the requirement.
BRW: How did you get into the Industry?
I’ve had an interest in electricity since the 4th grade when in science class we made simple circuits using batteries, switches, light bulbs and motors. This interest led me to pursue a career as an electrician after high school. Wanting to learn more about electricity, after a couple years I decided to go to college for electrical engineering. After my first year of college it was my experience as an electrician that landed me an internship here at Kato in the insulation lab building and testing sample coils.
BRW:Where is your favourite place in the world and why?
My favourite place in the world is out on the hiking trails near Lake Superior in Northern Minnesota, because it’s great to get away from the technology from time to time.
Join Jacob Jewison on a webinar entitled “Properly Sizing Your Generator” on 14th November at 3PM London/10AM New York.
