Do You Know How Much Electric Motors Consume In Energy?

According to the Department of Energy, 57% of all Electrical Energy consumed in the US by Electric Motors. There are over 1 Billion Electric Motors in use in the US!

Do you know how much Electric Motors cost you?

The initial cost to purchase a motor represents: 1% of the cost of owning it, 4% for repairing the motor, 5% is for downtime when the motor can not be used, 90% of the cost of operating an Electric Motor is from power costs.

To ensure that our Educators and Trainers are covering the importance of motor ratings at full and partial loads, Mr. John O'Brien of Toshiba International will conduct a train the trainer program. He will discuss the new NEMA Premium rating system, operational cost comparisons (Motor Life Cycle Cost Analysis), and how NEMA Premium Efficient Motors can lower power costs, and reduce energy use.

Mr. O'Brien's train the trainer session will also cover the following: Why is improving Motor Efficiency Important, What is an NEMA Premium Efficient Motor, When should a User consider applying an NEMA Premium Efficient Motor, & How should a User begin a Motor Efficiency Improvement Program?

Mr. O'Brien has over 27 years in the Electric Motor and Adjustable Speed Drive industry. He has been with Toshiba International Corporation for 21 years, and their Regional Sales Manager for 17. Toshiba is a world leader in the design and manufacture of motors, motor controls and power electronics products. Many of these products are designed, built and tested in their 620,000 square foot state of the art manufacturing facility in Houston. They have developed a totally integrated manufacturing process from research and development design, engineering, production and manufacturing to after market service and support. Toshiba builds Nema Premium Efficiency Motors is ODP, TEFC, and Explosion Proof designs.

Mr. O'Brien will conduct his Motor Train the Trainer program during the National HVACR Educators and Trainers Conference, March 16-19, 2008 in Las Vegas, NV. This session is one of over 20 train the trainer programs and is open to anyone involved in training the future of our industry.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
