COURSE TITLE: Energy Efficient Electric Motor Selection
COURSE NO: E04-016
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Energy Efficient Electric Motor Selection
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH 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.

 

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 4 PDH online course is applicable to electrical engineers, energy auditors, plant managers, plant engineers, and others interested in energy management or preventative maintenance programs.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education 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
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU 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".

COURSE TITLE: Performance Assessment of Lighting Systems
COURSE NO: E04-013
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Performance Assessment of Lighting Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of good lighting practices and discusses the performance assessment methodology.

 

Good lighting does not necessarily mean more lighting nor does the more lighting means more energy consumption. Good lighting does mean more effective lighting while low on energy consumption. It is important to ensure that while the most appropriate equipment to meet the lighting requirements is used, it is also the most efficient equipment of its type. The most energy efficient lighting installations ensure that lighting is provided only where and when it is required. This may be achieved with appropriate design to produce either uniform general lighting or localized lighting.

 

This 4 PDH  online course is aimed at architects, electrical and control engineers, energy auditors, O&M personnel and general audience who are interested in learning more about performance assessments of lighting systems.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the difference between lighting efficiency and lighting effectiveness
  • Learning lighting performance terms and definitions
  • Familiarizing with general facility lighting systems
  • Understanding lighting audit criteria
  • Understanding lighting performance test methodology
  • Learning the standard recommendations & rules of thumb data on lighting usage
  • Ability to compare different types of lamps
  • Understanding lighting control strategies
  • Familiarizing with the standards & codes

COURSE TITLE: Power Factor in Electrical Energy Management
COURSE NO: E04-014
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Power Factor in Electrical Energy Management
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course briefly highlights a systematic approach to the measurement, correction and control of power factor with the objective of cutting energy costs.

 

Although terms 'power factor measurement' and 'power factor correction' are well known to electrical engineers, the real importance of 'power factor' is not always recognized or little understood. Power factor is the percentage of electricity that is being used to do useful work. It is expressed as a ratio. For example, a power factor of 0.72 would mean only 72% of the power is being used for useful work. Power factor correction is the method used to fix the problems that cause power to be wasted. Energy is saved, and penalties levied by power companies are reduced or eliminated.

 

This 4 PDH online course is aimed at students, electrical & control engineers, energy auditors, operational & maintenance engineers, contractors and system designers who are responsible for design and operation of the system.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the importance of power factor improvement;
  • Understanding the difference between real, apparent and reactive power;
  • Learning about the direct and indirect cost of low power factor;
  • Knowing the benefits of high power factor;
  • Knowing the causes of low power factor;
  • Understanding the means of improving power factor;
  • Understanding the selection aspects of power factor capacitors;
  • Learning about the harmonic distortion and power factor correction;
  • Ability to conceptualize, judge and select the right system
