Work Details

WORK IN ENERGY AUDIT

To correlate monthly data of production with electricity, diesel, LPG and water consumption, for a period of 12 – 18 months of normal operation for overall complex and individual sections.

 
 
 

 Review of Electricity Bills, Contract Demand & Power Factor

  1. Review of last one year electricity bill to study monthly power factor, maximum demand, working hours, load factor, etc. for the reference period along with monthly electricity consumption and establish scope for MD control through possible optimization of load factor and through detailed load management study.
  2. To recommend a specific rationalization / optimization program based on measurement of DB power factors, existing capacitor system and its maintenance, automatic / manual controls required etc.

 Electrical System Network

  1. To study monthly transformer loading with existing & future connected load so as to recommend a specific rationalization / optimization plan for transformer capacity.
  2. Harmonic distortion analysis on transformer input/output will be done.
  3. To study electrical energy metering, monitoring and control system existing at the plant and to recommend a suitable system for future monitoring.

 Motors

  1. To undertake a detailed motor load study on all motors equal to and above 5 KW size with the help of a clamp on multi-meter to identify instantaneous motor parameters like kW, KVA, P.F., A,
    V, frequency etc. and establish their variations over a load cycle (for variable load drives, if any).
  2. This study will help establish / recommend motor specific rationalization plan including star conversion, downsizing, use of motor energy savers and high efficiency drives etc.
  3. Based on the above to evaluate the possibility of replacing major motors with energy efficient motors.
  4.  To provide cost benefit analysis for the replacement policy.
  5. To study compressed air system in the plant, in terms of compressor type, make, capacity, loading, motor type / size / loading etc. and to undertake output efficiency test for the operating compressors. This will identify opportunities for compressed air generation optimisation and energy savings.
  6. To undertake compressed air leakages tests & recommend the locations of air leakage.

 Illumination System

  1. Study of the Illumination system.
  2. Lux level in various areas, area lighting etc.
  3. To recommend a specific plan for rationalization of lighting load through possible use of north light and switching off use of energy efficient lighting equipment like tri-phosphor fluorescent tube light etc.

 Pumps
