An energy audit is an inspection, survey and analysis of energy flows, for energy conservation in a building, process or system to reduce the amount of energy input into the system without negatively affecting the output(s). Reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy_audit
ALPS MSI offers to conduct free energy audit 2 – 5 rotating machines whose methodologies are in compliance to International Performance Measurement Verification Protocol (IPMVP). www.evo-world.org
NOTE: ECM – Energy Conservation Measure
ALPS MSI has the expertise in energy audit, engineering and project management by drive specialists with extensive experience in nearly all branches of industry. These services save time and minimize the project- related personnel needed in the company.
1. Identifying potential energy savings
The energy requirements are determined and potential energy savings are identified:
- Identification of the existing energy consumption of the plants;
- Representation of the energy flow and possible savings potentials;M
- Measurement of the power and grid quality;
- Analysis of electric motors in terms of their workload and energy efficiency; and
- Compilation of energy costs to deter- mine the potential energy savings.
2. Evaluating the collected data
The identified areas of potential savings are evaluated using different methods to establish a solid foundation for decision-making:
- Incorporation of experience from similar plants through comparison with known applications;
- Calculation of potential savings using SinaSave energy efficiency software;
- Determination of investment costs taking lifetime, amortization, and feasibility into account ; and
- Definition of measures and proposed solutions.
3. Implementing the energy optimization measures
The suitable products and specific implementation measures are determined and carried out. Selection of suitable components:
- Retrofit and modernization of plant parts;
- Provision of order support;
- Project management and administration;
- Engineering, project planning, set up, modifications, assembly, installation, commissioning, acceptance testing, and training; and
- Review of results after a specified period of time.
Improved energy balance and production conditions over the long term
- Efficient energy use through the installation of state-of-the-art energy-saving motors;
- Optimized energy use through retrofits on variable-speed drives;
- Adaptation of energy consumption to meet the specific requirements of the application;
- Less grid demand for reactive power;
- Improved motor starting performance;
- Lower network load through fewer harmonics;
- Less wear and tear thanks to adjusted speeds;
- Optimized production conditions through lower maintenance requirements;
