Online Event

Tuesday, Feb. 23 (part 1) and Wednesday, Feb. 24 (part 2)

8:30 am - 11:30 am CST (both days)

Course Description:

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

Who should attend: Maintenance Personnel, Energy Personnel, Managers & Directors, Facility Managers, Plant and Facility Staff, Manufacturing and Processing Personnel, HVAC Engineers and Designers, Building Operators, Utility Managers, Procurement Personnel, Environment, Health & Safety Professionals

Tuition: Course attendance is free.
