Abstract:
ABSTRACT Energy saving is necessary for saving fuel and energy cost in industry. The energy saving has become one of the main objective of the international and national policies. Most pumps and fans are oversized for the duties they perform. Electric motors use two-third of all electricity in industry, so any chance to reduce this load, even by single figures is highly significant. Boiler feed pumps consume a large fraction of the auxiliary power (in excess of 4 % of unit capacity) used internally within a power plant in pressurizing and forcing the feed water through economizer to the boiler. The changing rotation speed is the most effective and economical way of improving the pump efficiency. Adjustments made to rotation speed causes only a slight decrease in the pump efficiency compared to operation with fixed revolutions. This type of control allows a reduction in electricity consumption in a wide range of loads. The VFD installation cost and the financial burden is balanced against the earning resulting from the associated energy saving. Keywords: VFD, VSD, BFP, Pinched Point, MCR
