1. Performing an Audit and Assessing Data

2. Perform an Audit Types of Energy Audits • Desktop • Use only nameplate data (horsepower or Kw) • May use only our Inventory Table • How are we operating our processes? • Pitfall to this is it uses assumed efficiency & load • Energy Survey and Analysis • Use voltmeters, ammeters or, preferably, a Power meter, and flow measurement • How are we operating our processes? • Computer Modeling • Usually requires a consultant or more technical expertise • How are we operating our processes?

3. Table of Equipment • Motor List - Area of Plant Equipment • Rated hp. • Number of units • Hours/day that each runs • Age • Efficiency • Power factor • Daily/monthly cost for group • All of the above can be obtained using nameplate data • Or can actually measure using volt, amps, or a Power meter. Suggest that we do this for all motors. Why?

4. The ENERGY AUDIT • Identify priorities: • Look for Low Hanging Fruit • Get biggest bang for our buck • Operating Procedures • Older equipment • Outdated technology • Simple vs. complex Operator incentives will generally find ways to save. Must understand billing structure

5. Motor Nameplate

6. Desktop- Evaluation Equipment Evaluation Calculation: Use Nameplate Data • Reliance Electric, 75 hp., • 230/460 volt, amps 175/87.6, • 1780 rpm, 94.1 % efficiency • Power Factor 84.9% • Run time 6.25 hours per day 1.73 X Volts X Amps X Power Factor ÷ 1000 = Kilowatt (Kw) 1.73 X 460 volts X 87.6 Amps X 0.849 Power Factor ÷ 1000 = 60.2 Kw Demand Annual Kw = 60.2 (Kw) X 6.25 hr/day X 365 days/year = 137,331 Kw hr/year

7. Energy Survey & Analysis Equipment Evaluation Calculation Use Field Gathered Data • Reliance Electric, • 75 hp. - 230/460 volt, amps 175/87.6 • 1780 rpm, 94.1 % efficiency • Measured Data: Volts : L1/L2 477, L2/L3 472, L1/L3 482 = avg. 477 • amps 86.9, 87.0, 86.2 = average 86.7 • Amperage imbalance 0.57 % • Power Factor 0.849 • Run time 6.25 hours per day 1.73 X Volts X Amps X Power Factor ÷ 1000 = Kilowatt (Kw) 1.73 X 477 volts X 86.7 Amps X 0.849 Power Factor ÷ 1000 = 60.7 Kw Demand Annual Kw = 60.7 (Kw) X 6.25 hr/day X 365 days/year = 138,472 Kw hr/year

8. Monitor and Measure Results • Track performance • Set up a method to continuously gather the data • Pay attention to other changes made that may affect the data • Develop a plan to maintain the new equipment or processes • Remember that this is not a one-time event. It should be ongoing continuous improvement

9. Correcting Power Factor • Installing capacitors (large investment) • Minimizing the operation of idling or lightly-loaded motors • Avoid operation of equipment above the rated voltage • Replace standard motors with high efficiency as the old one wear out or fails

10. Example Cost Calculation • Data • 25 hp pump • Operates an average of 18 hours/day • Load factor = 65% • Motor efficiency = 90% • Power cost = \$0.08/kwh • Monthly cost = 25 hp x 0.746 kwh/hp x 1.0/0.90 x \$0.08/kwh x 0.65 x 18 hours/day x 30 days/month = \$582.00 • What is the approximate Demand for this motor?

11. Calculating The Cost • Assumptions • Not all motors run at full load • Will assume Power costs are ~ \$0.08/kwh • Motor efficiency = 90% • Load factor on pump = 65% • {Hp X (0 .746)/motor efficiency (.90)} x monthly hours x \$/kwhr x load factor (0.65) = Monthly costs

12. Field Surveyand Analysis Better Than a Desktop Survey but requires more skills & reliable instruments

13. WARNING • You need a qualified electrician to use the following equipment. • You will be going into live panels to take these measurements. • You will need very specific PPE depending on our activities. • DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO THIS IF we HAVE NOT HAD THE REQUIRED SAFETY TRAINING

14. Equipment Needed • Power meter (or ammeter and volt meter) • Tachometer (to measure pump speed) • Calibrated flow meter • Magnetic flow meters rarely need calibration, unless exposed to solids • Calibrated pressure gages • Always best to use a new calibrated pressure gage • Gages that have been installed for some time can be reading incorrectly, especially if subjected to solids • Usually a waste of money to install gages on all pumps • Best to install fittings and bring a good gage to take measurements when needed

15. Measuring Power • It is best to measure with a Power meter (if we have a qualified electrician to set it up). This involves going into the electrical panel. • The Power meter will give us • Exact kw, kwh, and Power factor • A correlation with actual flowrate, etc., if a flowmeter is available

16. System Measurements • For 460 volt systems measure all three legs of the Power feed. • The voltage to the motor should be within 10% of the nameplate. Example nameplate 460v : Range 414v – 506v • The voltage deviation in any one leg should be < 1% from the average. Example 1 % of 460v = 4.6v • The amperage Imbalance should be < 5% from the average • If it does not meet the above criteria, take steps to troubleshoot the system

17. Data to Collect • Pump Speed (rpm) • Flowrate (gpm or cfm) • Pressure in and out (psig) • Volts and amps on all legs of power in • Power used (kw) • Power factor • VFD % of full scale

18. Measuring Flowrate • Best if you have an installed flow meter, that is calibrated • Magnetic flow meters require little calibration, unless in a sludge line and subject to buildup • Venturi meters require calibration • Can install a temporary flow meter (strap-on) • If possible, pump in or out of a tank and measure levels

19. Measure Pressure • You may have a pressure gage installed on the pump discharge. It probably does not read correctly • Best to install a calibrated gage (certified) on both suction and discharge side of the pump • TDH is the discharge pressure minus the suction pressure

20. Impeller Size: 10” Total Head: 45 ft Capacity: 200 gpm Eff.: 58% bhp: 3.9 Impeller Size: 10” Total Head: 40 ft Capacity: 400 gpm Eff.: 73% bhp: 5.5

21. Pump Curves • Provided by the manufacturer when delivered • Always good practice to verify the curve during commissioning (make it a requirement of the specification) • Good practice to check each pump’s performance on a schedule

22. Pump Curves • Plots flow vs. TDH • Also shows Best Efficiency Point (BEP) – minimum stress on the pump system, max efficiency • Shows brake horsepower (bhp) vs. flow • If a VFD, will show several curves • If a tested pump is on the curve and operating at the BEP, we have done our job well.

23. How to determine actual pump efficiency Ep= 3.14 X Head ft. X Flow MG Power kWh X Eff. Motor

24. Calculate theoretical pump efficiency A raw sewage pump operating at a head of 30 feet draws down a 25 ft. by 25 ft. wet well by 3 ft. with the inlet valve closed in 3 minutes. During this period the current draw on the 50 hp. 460 volt motor was measured to be 63 amps. What is the efficiency of the pump? Flow Quantity MG = 25 ft. X 25 ft. X 3 ft. X 7.48 gal/ft3 = .o14 MG 1,000,000 Power Consumption KwHr = 1.73 X 460V X 63 Amps X .81 PF X 3 minutes / 60 min/hr. = 2 kwhr 1000 Ep= 3.14 X 30 Head ft. X .014 Flow MG 2.0 Power kWh X 0.90 Eff. Motor

25. Calculate theoretical pump efficiency A raw sewage pump operating at a head of 30 feet draws down a 25 ft. by 25 ft. wet well by 3 ft. with the inlet valve closed in 3 minutes. During this period the current draw on the 50 hp. 460 volt motor was measured to be 63 amps. What is the efficiency of the pump? Flow Quantity MG = 25 ft. X 25 ft. X 3 ft. X 7.48 gal/ft3 = .o14 MG 1,000,000 Power Consumption KwHr = 1.73 X 460V X 63 Amps X .81 PF X 3 minutes / 60 min/hr. = 2 kwhr 1000 Ep = 3.14 X 30 Head ft. X .014 Flow MG = 0.73 2.0 Power kWh X 0.90 Eff. Motor

26. Wire-To-Water Efficiency • A 100% efficient pump/motor combination would require one kWHr of electricity to raise .318 MG of water one foot. Ep = 3.14 X Head ft. X Flow MG = Power X Ep X Em = .318 Power kWh X Eff. Motor 3.14 X Head • So to determine the theoretical gallons/kWHr for any other head, simply divide 318,000 by the head. • Then actual efficiency of a particular pump/motor combination equals: Actual Gallons / kWHr Theoretical Gallons / kWHr

27. Calculation of Wire-To-Water Efficiency A pump raises 10 million gallons of wastewater an average of 30 feet during a month, and consumes 1340 kWHr in the process. What is the approximate pump/motor efficiency? • Theoretical Pumped at 30 ft of head 318,000 = 10,607 gals / kWHr 30 • Actual Pumped = 10,000,000 = 7463 gals/ kWHr 1340 kWHr • Pump/motor combination equals: Actual Gallons / kWHr = 7463 gals/ kWHr = 70% Theoretical Gals / kWHr 10,607 gals/ kWHr

28. Causes of Pump Inefficiency • Wrong type of application • Oversized • Poor system design • Cavitation – can lead to pump failure • Wear ring clearance excessive • Internal recirculation • Poor flow control maybe pumping more than process needs • Bearings worn • Mechanical seal leakage – or improper packing adjustment

29. Possible Fixes to Pump Problems • If a pump is oversized (common) • Replace the impeller with a smaller one • Trim the impeller • Use a Variable Frequency Drive • Install a smaller pump for lower flow periods

30. Energy Conservation Measures For Motors • Motor Rewind / Overhaul • Match Motor to Load • Improving power factor with capacitors • Replacement with energy efficient motors • You need to include cost of installation in your analysis.

31. Energy Conservation Measures For Motors Motor Rewind / Overhaul • Usually remains the best option: • Especially when it’s a special order motor (non-stock). • Its already a premium efficiency motor • Its needed ASAP • Should evaluate this option before failure occurs • Will the overhaul reduce or improve efficiency – Talk to your motor shop • 97% of a motors Lifetime real cost is Energy Consumption. Less than 1% is purchase cost

32. Energy Conservation Measures For Motors Motor Rewind / Overhaul Let’s Look at an example: You have a 10 hp. Return Sludge Motor that has failed. The efficiency of the motor is 88.5% and rewind will cost \$700. A new premium efficiency motor 91.7% will cost \$1100. The return sludge pump operates 24 hours / day. Rewound Motor Energy Consumption 10 hp X 0.746 Kw/hp= 8.4 kW 0.885 eff Annual energy cost = \$7,358 8.4 kW X 24 hrs./day X 365 day/yr. X .10 / kWh Premium Motor Energy Consumption 10 hp X 0.746 Kw/hp= 8.1 kW 0.917 eff Annual energy cost = \$7,096 8.1 kW X 24 hrs./day X 365 day/yr. X .10 / kWh New Premium vs Rewind \$1,100 - \$700 = \$400 Annual Energy savings \$7,358 - \$7,096 = \$262 / year Payback Period \$400 / \$262 = 1.5 years Note: There will also be a savings related to the lower demand charge • You need to include cost of installation in your analysis.

33. Energy Conservation Measures For Motors Match Motor to Load • Usually not a good option: • Unless motor is loaded at less then 50% or OVERLOADED • Motors are generally most efficient at about 75 - 80% load. • Power Factor is a consideration when under loaded. • Designers sometimes oversize motors thinking about future upgrade • Smaller motors (< 10 hp) are more affected by underload • Load is difficult to determine. Suggest use amperage draw to estimate

34. Energy Conservation Measures For Motors Match Motor to Load • Usually a good option when: • Motors are significantly oversized and under loaded. • Motors are moderately oversized and under loaded. Replace when Fail • Motors that are properly sized but standard efficiency. Do analysis • Target the replacement motor load at 75%

35. Energy Conservation Measures For Motors Match Motor to Load Let’s Look at an example: You have a 10 hp. Motor. The motor is operating at ½ load and is 88.5% efficient. A new premium efficiency 7.5 hp. motor is 91.7% efficient and will cost \$900. The motor operates 24 hours / day. 7.5 hp Motor 5 hp load 5 hp X 0.746 Kw/hp= 4.0 kW 0.917 eff Annual energy cost = \$3,504 4.0 kW X 24 hrs./day X 365 day/yr. X .10 / kWh 10 hp Motor 5 hp. load 5 hp X 0.746 Kw/hp= 4.2 kW 0.885 eff Annual energy cost = \$3,679 4.2 kW X 24 hrs./day X 365 day/yr. X .10 / kWh New 7.5 hp Premium = \$900 Annual Energy savings \$3,679 - \$3,504 = \$175 / year Payback Period \$900 / \$175 per year = 5 years Note: There will also be a savings related to the lower demand charge • You need to include cost of installation in your analysis.
