Schneider Electric and power saving!
Year by year the power consumption of any enterprise grows, and consequently the costs are rising. All seek to minimize losses and to organize the process of production so that the economy was at the highest level and the production worked in full, without downtime and delays. If you do not take the process to conserve electricity, the production costs per unit of output will be growing every year, and profits to fall. Electrician at the bottom of the chain of command and decisions have little interest in saving energy, he is interested in the salary, and how it makes him not too interesting, and all because the salary of an electrician is not dependent on profits of the company. The situation is quite different in the management layer of any company, there all work for an award from the profits of the enterprise, and as a result the chief engineer in the subject constantly "saving electricity, gas and heat". In this little story I will tell you about some aspects of electricity consumption in the enterprise.
the Main task is not strange in the "reducing consumption", and "improve the efficiency" of the entire production. A few different directions and methods of implementation. To reduce you can just, and to achieve savings without reducing anything, do not so easily.
the Specifics of saving the energy emergency depends directly on the range of equipment in production, from all automated and at what level. In this case the best solution is automation based on the element base (relays, contactors, controllers, etc.) and final products ( Altivar, Altistart etc) European electronics manufacturer Schneider Electric for building energy saving systems. the let us start with some facts.
electricity Rates are rising, and the income from this fall. Energy resources are depleted, mining and exploration of new fields requires money, and as a result, the price of electricity is growing and growing. So, same periodically from not correct, is not an economically viable strategy for the use of equipment in production have to be replaced and the engines and gearboxes and switching equipment in the supply networks of production. So, do not forget that most plants LPG equipment still stands 20 years at least ago, and then thought about saving, then drove the plan! The usual case, the new equipment in the same conditions consumes much less energy than the old one under the same conditions.
Frequently and heavily in producing the lion is share of energy consumption entails not automated lines and plots. For example, the pumping station where the pump is switched to manual, or just old-fashioned scheme with reference to the threshold value of the pressure in the system. Or say a conveyor line where there are high-power motors and which are basically used as directed with 100 efficiency once a year, and the rest of the chase is half empty. In General, if you look experienced eye to any production, then anything can be automated using equipment from Schneider Electric to reduce consumption by at least 30%.
2/3 of total energy offices and businesses, this electricity, this is where you can achieve maximum savings. 90% of this coverage, if it comes to admin. building. Automation of lighting in the office will reduce significantly the charges for electricity. Equipment Schneider Electric will allow you to create "smart office" hands of an ordinary electrician. Enough to buy special equipment and smart way to build. Most modern commercial buildings have their original building management system (Building Automation System - BAS). So that is something to strive for and what is implemented at the facility to save electricity and increase profitability.
