This practical guide features ten self-contained chapters that thoroughly analyze each component in large-scale industrial facilities and lay out best practices for reducing energy consumption and optimizing performance. Designed to help minimize costs and comply with environmental regulations, Energy-Efficient Industrial Systems: Evaluation and Implementation clearly explains the elements of successful energy management programs and offers ready-to-implement strategies and techniques. Real-world case studies throughout illustrate successful projects that have achieved significant energy conservation results.
Energy-Efficient Industrial Systems: Evaluation and Implementation covers:
· Energy Management
· Motors and Drives
· Pumping Systems
· Fan Systems
· Boilers and Steam Systems
· Process Cooling Systems
· Compressed Air Systems
· Heat Recovery Systems
· Combined Heat and Power
· Financial Analysis
Industrial Energy Management: Principles and Applications is written both as a textbook for university courses in engineering and as a work of reference for professionals in energy management. Readers are assumed to have a basic knowledge of thermodynamics, heat and mass transfer, electric systems and power electronics, as well as computer programming.
This book can be used not only by technicians involved in the field of energy management but also by managers who may find it a useful tool for understanding investment proposals and even a spur to solicit new ones.
Industrial Energy Management: Principles and Applications consists of 21 chapters concerning general principles of energy transformation and energy sources, transformation plants such as electrical substantions and boiler plants, cogeneration plants, electrical and thermal fluid distribution lines, facilities plants such as pumps and fans, air compressors, cooling, HVAC and lighting systems, heat recovery equipment, principles of energy auditing and accounting by using computers, correlation between energy and waste, education in the field. At the end of the book a chapter has been dedicated to economic analysis of energy saving investments and evaluation is given of all the cases studied in the book.
Fully revised and updated with analysis of world energy utilization, incentives and utility rates, and new content highlighting how energy efficiency can be achieved through 1 of 16 outlined principles and programs, the book presents cost effective analysis, case studies, global examples, and guidance on building and site auditing.
This fully revised edition provides a theoretical basis for conservation, as well as the avenues for its application, and by doing so, outlines the potential for cost reductions through an analysis of inefficiencies.Provides extensive coverage of all major fundamental energy management principlesApplies general principles to all major components of energy use, such as HVAC, electrical end use and lighting, and transportationDescribes how to initiate an energy management program for a building, a process, a farm or an industrial facility
Summarizing proven energy efficient technologies in the building sector, the book includes examples that highlight the cost-effectiveness of some of these technologies. It introduces basic methods for designing and sizing cost-effective systems and determining whether it is economically efficient to invest in specific energy efficiency or renewable energy projects. It provides guidance for computing measures of economic performance for relatively simple investment choices and the fundamentals for dealing with complex investment decisions. The book also describes energy audit producers commonly used to improve the energy efficiency of residential and commercial buildings as well as industrial facilities.
After developing the basics of HVAC control, the book explores operational needs for successfully maintained operations. It describes the essentials of control systems for heating, ventilating, and air conditioning of buildings designed for energy conserving operation. The book also defines demand-side management, covers its role in integrated resource planning, and delineates the main elements of its programs. The book demonstrates these concepts with case studies of successful demand-side management programs. These features and more provide the tools necessary to improve energy management leading to higher energy efficiencies.
