  • Enviromental backround

  • ABB drives and energy efficiency

  • ABB energy audits process

  • Tools


Energy efficiency is a hot topic today

  • Both customers and governements are asking energy efficient solutions

  • Customers are focusing to they key processes

  • ABB motors and drives bring state of the art efficiency features to market

  • How ABB and customer can together cool down this hot topic?


CO2 effects on temperature and sea level

  • Models of a system as complex as the global climate cannot, of course, offer accurate predictions, but do at least reduce levels of uncertainty.


Global CO2 emissions -> 2050

  • CO2 emissions can be returned towards current levels by using a portofolio of technologies

CO2 emission reduction -> 2050

  • Energy efficiency plays the most important role in CO2 emission reductions, accounting for up to 53% of total CO2 emission reductions

Contents of training

  • Enviromental backround

  • ABB Drives and energy efficiency

  • ABB energy audits process

  • Tools


What wastes energy?

  • Oversized installations (motors, pumps, fans etc.)

  • Inefficient motor applications

  • Equipment running unnecessarily long hours

    • Stirrers on empty tanks

    • Deadheading pumps

    • Ventilation fans running 24/7

    • …and 1001 other applications


Control methods for pumps

  • Throttling

  • Bypassing

  • Variable speed

  • On/off control


Comparing different control methods


Energy efficiency on power plant level


Carbon footprint with ABB drives


ABB drives save energy

  • The installed base of ABB drives saved about 130 TWh in 2006, equivalent to the consumption per year of more than 32 million families.

  • ABB’s installed base of ABB low voltage drives reduced CO2 emissions in 2006 by 109 million ton, more than the yearly emission of Finland.


Contents of training

  • Enviromental backround

  • ABB Drives and energy efficiency

  • ABB energy audits process

  • Tools


Energy audit

  • With energy audits customer can achieve higher energy savings thanks to ABB competence

  • Optimizing customer process together with ABB audit team bring optimal results


Step 1 - Introduction

  • Meeting with customer responsible person – well known

  • Explain of scope of the audit

  • Explain the assistance he needs

    • Entrance to technology

    • Help with some special measurements


Step 2 - Information

  • Collecting the information about audited technology

  • Selecting of applicable drives (pumps, fans, conveyors, blowers,..)

  • Rating plate parameters of motors and driven equipments


Step 3 - Measurements

  • Determination of actual demand from technology

  • Measuring of electrical parameters

    voltage, current, power, power factor,...

  • Measuring of process parameters

    pressure, flow, speed, temperature,...

  • Measurements are optional


Step 3 - Measurements

  • With actual measurements it is easy to prove savings

  • Easy approach, one phase current measurement

  • Example: Becker extract fan, UK

    • Before, 68A average

    • After, 49A average


Step 4 - Analyze

  • Make calculation using ABB software - PumpSave, FanSave

  • Consultation with equipment producer about possibility to use VSD

  • Technology suitability

  • Identifying the potential savings


Step 5 - Report

  • Data evaluation - Recommendations

    • List of audited equipments

    • Preparing of action plan for savings implementation

  • Report for decicion makers having economical backround, more EURs than kWh’s

  • List of other benefits using AC drives


Contents of training

  • Enviromental backround

  • ABB Drives and energy efficiency

  • ABB energy audits process

  • Tools


ABB Calculation Tools

  • Pumpsave and Fansave

    • Library

  • Efficiency estimation guide

    • Guide to calculate motor&drive efficiency with DriveSize 2.8

    • SalesSupportDrives

  • Pump&fan manufacturers are supporting with tools

  • Separate data collection forms


ABB Animations

  • Mainly pump related animations to support marketing of drive features

  • Energy efficiency animation
