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 to 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 problems and systems that are most 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
