ABSTRACT

 

This paper presents field measurements and its analysis for the purpose of energy efficiency in pumping system in a technical institute in North part of India. Electricity consumption, water and sewerage discharge from the pumps were recorded and analysed. The measurements covered 2 numbers of submersible pumps and 2 numbers of mono block pumps in the campus. The findings suggest the ways to improve efficiency in pumping system. The energy savings was measured and recorded. The simple pay back period and carbon credits generated were calculated and the feasibility of the project was studied from the findings. Three Phase Power Quality Analyzer was used for monitoring of energy and tank filling method followed by averaging the readings was used to record the discharge of pumps. The study results in expec ted energy savings of 2.78 Lac units and CO2 emission reductions of 223 Tonnes per annum.
