Pumps take up 20-30% in a typical split of energy usage of motor driven equipment for an industrial plant. Commercial buildings, with lower demand for processes, it is between 15 - 20%. The large amounts of energy used for pumping makes pump systems a major candidate for energy savings. Pumping systems is usually less complicated when compared to process or chiller side optimisation.
At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Understand the performance characteristics of pumping systems
- Gain an enhanced understanding of a systems versus component approach to optimise the energy efficiency of pumping systems
- Identify performance problem and systems that are mostly likely to yield energy efficiency savings
- Develop an action plan to achieve energy efficiency improvements
- Integrate continuous energy improvement into the management of pumping systems
