Load studies: Discover how much energy individual pieces of equipment are consuming when they are operating at minimum and maximum capacity.
Energy assessments: Quantify energy consumption before, and after improvements, to justify energy saving devices
Energy surveys: Users often ask where measurements should be taken for an energy survey. The answer is multiple points within the facility. Start
at the main service feeders; compare the power and energy measured here with the readings from the utility meter to ensure you’re receiving the correct charges. Then move downstream to the larger loads; these should be easy to identify by the current rating of the electrical panels downstream of the service entrances. Measuring at many points will allow a full picture of energy usage across the facility to be developed.
Logging related analog measurements: When conducting energy studies, it is useful to log related analog measurements such as temperature,
voltage, current or pressure. These variables provide a better overall picture of operating conditions and allow you to correlate asset performance data with energy consumption. Correlating these variables provides more of the data you need to make cost saving performance adjustments.
