2. Motor Electricity Use • Motors consume about 75% of all the electricity used by industry. • Their popularity is a testament to their reliability, versatility and efficiency. • Despite these attributes, the cost of powering motor driven systems in the US is over \$90 billion per year. • Thus, increasing the efficiency of motor drive systems can lead to significant savings.

3. Motors: The Nature of Wealth • Today, generating 1-hp requires: • 32 lb motor (30x less) • 4 x 6 inches (12x less) • costs \$250 /year to power (20x less) • James Watt observed that a horse pulling 180 pounds of force made 144 trips around the circle in an hour, at an average speed of 181 feet per minute. Thus, the horse generated 33,000 ft. lbs. per minute, which Watt called one “horsepower”. • Generating 1 hp required: • 1,000 lb horse • 6 ft tall • costs \$5,000 /yr to board

4. How Motors Work • Three stator windings located 120o apart in cylinder around rotor. • Rotor contains magnets, called poles, and is attached to shaft. • Alternating current, also offset by 120o, through stator windings produces electromagnetic field. • EMF interacts with magnets on rotor, which rotates rotor and shaft.

5. Determining Motor Input Power Estimating Input Power Pin (kW) = Pout,rated (hp) x FracLoad x 0.75 (kW/hp) / Efficiency Example: If a 100 hp motor is 80% loaded and 90% efficient, estimate input power: Input Power = 100 hp x 0.80 x 0.75 kW/hp / 0.90 = 67 kW Measuring Input Power Pin (kW) = Current (A) x Voltage (V) x PF (kW/kVA) x 31/2 / 1,000 VA/kVA Example: If a motor draws 100 A at 480 V with PF = 0.80, calculate input power: Input Power = 100 A x 480 V x 0.8 kW/kVA x 31/2 / 1,000 VA/kVA = 66 kW

6. Determining Motor Loading From Input Power Fraction Loaded = Actual Output Power / Rated Output Power Example: Calculate fraction loaded of a 100 hp, 95% efficient motor drawing 66 kW Output Power = 66 kW x 0.95 / 0.75 kW/hp = 84 hp Fraction Loaded = 84 hp / 100 hp = 84%

8. Plant Data • Plant operates 6,000 hours per year • Cost of electricity including demand is \$0.10 /kWh • Cost of demand = \$10 /kW-month

9. Turn Off Motors When Not In Use! • Stamping press motors • 80% loaded while stamping • 65% loaded during idle • 81% of power dissipated as heat due to friction! • Example: Turn off idling 50-hp stamping press for 2,000 hr/yr. • Savings = ? \$/yr

10. Turn Off Motors When Not In Use! • Stamping press motors • 80% loaded while stamping • 65% loaded during idle • 81% of power dissipated as heat due to friction! • Example: Turn off idling, 90% efficient, 50-hp stamping press motor for 2,000 hr/yr. • 50 hp x .65 / 90% x .75 kW/hpx 2,000 hr/yr= 54,167 kWh/yr • 54,167 kWh/yrx \$0.10 /kWh = \$5,417 /yr

11. Turn Off Motors When Not In Use! • 20-hp hydraulic system motor • 8 kW while loaded • 5 kW while unloaded • Draws 63% of loaded power when unloaded. • Example: Turn off idling hydraulic motor for 2,000 hr/yr. • Savings = ? \$/yr

12. Turn Off Motors When Not In Use! • 20-hp hydraulic system motor • 8 kW while loaded • 5 kW while unloaded • Draws 63% of loaded power when unloaded. • Example: Turn off idling hydraulic motor for 2,000 hr/yr. • 5 kW x 2,000 hr/yr = 10,000 kWh/yr • 10,000 kWh/yr x \$0.10 /kWh = \$1,000 /yr

13. Move Motor Use to Off-Peak Shift • Some motors used only during one shift • Move use to off-peak shift to reduce electrical demand charges • Example: Move 50-hp, 80% loaded, 90% efficient, grinder to off-peak shift • Savings = ? \$/yr

14. Move Motor Use to Off-Peak Shift • Some motors used only during one shift • Move use to off-peak shift to reduce electrical demand charges • Example: Move 50-hp, 80% loaded, 90% efficient, grinder to off-peak shift • 50-hp x 80% / 90% x 0.75 kW/hp= 33 kW • 33 kW x \$10 /kW-mo x 12 mo/yr = \$4,000 /yr

15. Motor Startup and Demand Most motors • Operate at 900, 1,800 or 3,600 RPM. • Draw more current (power) as the motor comes up to speed • Come up to speed in a few seconds Most utilities • Calculate peak electrical demand as max 15 or 30 minute energy use • A few seconds of high power draw not enough time to significantly increase total use during demand period • Hence, negligible demand penalty from motor start up. Thus, turn off motors when not in use • Saves energy (kWh) with negligible affect on demand (kW)

Input power of 10 hp motor at 82% efficiency is: 10 hp/ 82% x .75 kW/hp= 9.15 kW Annual savings: (12.5 kW - 9.15 kW) x 6,000 hr/yr = 20,100 kWh/yr 20,100 kWh x \$0.10 /kWh = \$2,012 /yr Implementation Cost 10-hp motor costs \$500 Simple Payback \$500 / \$2,012 /yr x 12 mo/yr = 3 months

25. Motors: Energy Cost >> Purchase Cost • Consider 20-hp, 75% loaded, 93% efficient motor • Purchase cost: \$1,161 • Annual energy cost: • 20 hp x 75% / 93% x .75 kW/hp x 6,000 hr/yrx \$0.10 /kWh • = \$7,258 /yr • After 1 year, energy cost is 6x purchase cost! • After 10 years, energy cost is 60x purchase cost!

26. 1% Improvement in Efficiency Equals Purchase Cost Consider 20 hp motor, 93% efficient, 80% loaded, 6,000 hr/yr, 10 years Cost of electricity If efficiency = 93%, then 10 year electricity cost = \$77,500 If efficiency = 94%, then 10 year electricity cost = \$76,600 Savings = \$77,500 - \$76,600 = \$900 Cost of motor Purchase cost = \$1,000 Thus, Purchase ‘premium efficiency’ motors!
