- [00:00:01.520]Hi, and welcome to the Nebraska
- [00:00:03.730]Industrial Assessment Center video series.
- [00:00:06.590]Here we will be looking at common opportunities
- [00:00:09.520]to reduce electrical demand.
- [00:00:11.650]In review, electrical demand in a facility is
- [00:00:14.360]the sum of the power being drawn by all of
- [00:00:16.890]the active equipment at the same time.
- [00:00:19.420]So, the more equipment that your facility has on at
- [00:00:22.460]the same time, then the higher the actual electrical demand
- [00:00:26.050]at that given instant will be.
- [00:00:28.390]Common opportunities for reducing your facility's
- [00:00:32.080]electrical demand is replacing equipment
- [00:00:35.520]with lower wattage equipment and staggering equipment
- [00:00:38.380]that is in parallel operation.
- [00:00:40.600]Next we'll be looking at examples of both of those two ways
- [00:00:44.200]that you can reduce your electrical demand.
- [00:00:46.840]Here we'll be showing you examples of
- [00:00:49.050]the improved efficiency and staggered operation ways
- [00:00:52.610]of improving your peak demand.
- [00:00:55.430]First, with the improved efficiency,
- [00:00:57.370]you can see just a lower profile
- [00:00:59.530]of your electrical demand over time through
- [00:01:03.570]the improved efficiency of one of your equipment.
- [00:01:06.487]The second being staggered operation
- [00:01:09.550]where you can stagger, in this case, one of your motors
- [00:01:13.640]so that you turn off one of them, in this case,
- [00:01:18.426]as you're turning on the other.
- [00:01:20.800]That way that you lower your demand profile
- [00:01:24.350]and therefore lowering your peak demand.
