You Comfort your machine to conserve Energy.

First measure Energy to Manage & Minimize

  • In the above case study, the existing motor is rewound a few times. After rewinding the motor, the no load current and power were measured and this was very much on the higher side. After the energy audit findings, the industry decided to change the same motor with a new high efficiency motor. The savings realized on the no-load consumption itself was 1050 units per month. You will surprised the savings achieved by the industry with the motor on loading conditions was obviously much more.
  • So it is better to know our motors first, which is good and which is bad for workability?
  • First step is to measure the no load power parameters of all our existing motors and have two tables in our industry table I – Less No load power motor & table II – High no load power motor
  • What we need for the above measurement is not One Lakh Rupees Power Analyzer but a Clamp on Power Analyzer costing around Rs.Ten Thousands only. This meter put to regular use, hence gives the motor no- load characteristics like KW, KVA, KVAR, PF, volts, amps, etc.
  • Generally speaking we study the Efficiency of any machine and then only decide its optimum loading. As an analogy we ask ourselves whether we eat to Live or Live to Eat. If we are Eat to live people we eat for us and serve for all to sustain the environment.
  • . On the contrary if we live to eat, then we are living on earth only to eat for ourselves only & we want others to serve us. Similarly we study the motor load & no-load characteristics and decide whether the motor serves the industry or a liability to the industry.
  • Now this disturbs your mind, how many motors work like this? Please act quickly.
