The majority of electrical energy consumed in most industrial facilities is used to run electric motors. By incorporating energy efficient electric motors during new construction or replacement can increase productivity while achieving substantial energy and dollar savings. The efficiency gains are obtained through the use of refined design, better materials, and improved construction.
This course provides an overview of the characteristics, economics, and benefits of standard versus high-efficiency motors. It covers the economic and operational factors to be considered when motor purchase decisions are being made.
This course is applicable to electrical engineers, energy auditors, plant managers, plant engineers, and others interested in energy management or preventative maintenance programs.
In this course, you need to review the US Department of Energy and the Bonneville Power Administration's Publication Number: DOE/BPA-34623-3, titled “Energy-Efficient Electric Motor Selection Handbook”, and provided below. Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty (20) questions to earn 4 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on this DOE Publication.
This course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
· Knowing when to buy energy efficient motors
· Understanding energy efficient motor performance and price
· Determining and comparing motor efficiencies
· Learning how much one can save on energy efficient motor
· Obtaining motor efficiency data
· Knowing the energy efficient motor selection guidelines
· Learning about Speed, Design Voltage, Enclosure, Part-load Efficiency, and Power Factor
· Understanding motor operation under abnormal conditions
· Understanding motor selection considerations
· Learning about the additional benefits of energy efficient motors
