The passive voice may be wordy, but it serves a valuable purpose. When you don’t know or want to reveal the actor is the best example.  „I was robbed! Maybe I don’t know who robbed me. What am suppose to say, „Someone robbed me?“ I was robbed is shorter and easier. Or what if you know the actor but don’t want to reveal who it was? Passive voice is helpful there.

Do you need help using it or eliminating it?

To remove the passive voice, write your declaritive sentences as solid facts. Have your subject do the main action rather than the verb happening to the object. Often if your sentence uses an auxilary (helping) verb, it is passive. 

He wrote an active sentence. (active)

The sentence he wrote was passive. (passive)

what about it? What do you want to know? Some reason engineers seem to use it way too often and it dilutes the statement and makes it too wordy.
