Variable Speed Pumping
This online engineering PDH course describes the basics of pump types, selection procedures, variable speed drives for pumps, capital cost savings, and system analysis.
Significant opportunities exist to reduce pumping system energy consumption through smart design, retrofitting, and operating practices. In particular, the many pumping applications with variable-duty requirements offer great potential for savings. The savings often go well beyond energy, and may include improved performance, improved reliability, and reduced life cycle costs.
This 3 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical engineers, design and construction personnel, technical staff and facility personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding of variable speed pumping.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Pump types
- Pumping systems
- Retrofitting of pumping systems
- Benefits of variable speed drives
- Potential drawbacks of variable speed drives
- Capital cost savings
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the material contained in Variable Speed Pumping - A Guide to Successful Applications, DOE/GO-102004-1913, May 2004.
