Introduction to Motors, Fans & Pumps with VFDs
Tuesday, Feb. 23 (part 1) and Wednesday, Feb. 24 (part 2)
8:30 am - 11:30 am CST (both days)
Motors are responsible for more than 60% of the energy consumed in commercial buildings and manufacturing facilities. Understanding and optimizing fan and pumping systems will provide significant opportunities in reducing energy costs. Do you know:
- The cost to run a fully loaded 20 hp fan motor for one year?
- The difference between optimizing a component verses optimizing a system?
- Why use a variable frequency drive (VFD)?
- How to determine when purchasing a new motor is more energy cost effective than rewinding an existing motor?
- What types of cash incentives are available from Focus on Energy associated with fans and pumping systems?
This course will answer these questions! Subjects that will be covered:
- Major components (motors, fans pumps, VFD)
- Terminology (psi, head, system curves, affinity laws, KPI)
- Using thumb-rules to estimate energy cost savings
- System optimization
- Cost reduction strategies
- Case studies
