1 Unidrive M Energy Savings

2 Why is this important? Some Data: Money, Lots of Money >13.5m electric motors 1Hp or greater installed in US industrial process operations. Industry spends >$33b annually on electricity for electric motor driven systems. Industrial motors system electricity accounts for 24% of all electricity sold in Industry consumed 691b kwh in process motor driven systems plus an additional 68b kwh per year on HVAC. In the US industrial sector, 70% of all electricity consumption involves motor driven systems. 59% of this goes to pumps, fans, blowers and compressed air systems large plants account for 35% of total industrial motor energy consumption. (Chemical, Paper, Mining, Metals) Global Competition US energy consumption is 60% higher per person than our European competitors Source: Department Of Energy Slide 2

3 Energy Savings Agenda: Increase profitability through best in class energy savings technology All Unidrive M models include control algorithms that can save energy in all applications particularly fans and pumps Unidrive M drives can be connected in energy savings common bus and regeneration configurations for multi axis and overhauling load applications Unidrive M600-M810 when coupled with Emerson Permanent Magnet motors from Leroy-Somer provide exceptional energy savings Reduce operating costs Slide 3

4 Energy Savings Opportunities by Type of Load Variable Torque loads offer the greatest potential for Energy Savings due to inherent operating characteristics Load torque (increases) with speed. Centrifugal Fans & Pumps Some Constant Torque & Constant Power loads offer energy savings but are typically implemented to improve the process and reduce a wide range of costs Conveyors, Positive Displacement & Reciprocating Pumps & Compressors, Web Handling, Production Machinery Slide 4 4

5 Introduction How do AC Variable Speed Drives Save Energy? Slide 5

6 Variable Torque Loads Load requires much lower power at low speeds than at high speeds. Fan and Pump loads obey the AFFINITY LAWS. Volume Flow is proportional to the speed. Pressure is proportional to the speed squared. Power is proportional to the speed cubed. Audible noise is proportional to speed to the 5 th power. Therefore, if the speed can be reduced, the opportunity for energy savings is great. Slide 6

7 Variable Torque Load Characteristics At 80% Speed (Flow), theoretical Power consumption is 50% of rated. % HP and Torque HP Torque Flow % Speed Reduction in speed = significant reduction in energy Slide 7 7

8 Variable Torque Load Characteristics NOTE: At 50% Speed (Flow) the theoretical Power consumption is only 12.5% of rated. % HP and Torque HP Torque Flow % Speed Slide 8

10 Unidrive M Dynamic Volts/Hz Feature: Slide 10

11 Unidrive M Dynamic Volts/Hz Feature: Variable (Dynamic) Volts/Hz - Maximizes Energy Savings. - Automatically Optimizes the drive output voltage to match the requirements of the load. - Also minimizes motor noise. - Results in about 10% more energy savings. Even at 60Hz. Voltage Slide % Speed

12 VFDs and Fans Common applications in Industrial and HVAC systems. Exhaust Fans Dust Collectors Condenser Fans Fume Hoods Cooling Tower Fans Oven Fans Air Circulation Fans Slide 12

13 VFDs and Fans Typically sized for maximum flow Systems typically operate at less than designed levels Flow control is normally achieved using either an output damper or inlet guide vanes Engineering safety factor is typically 20 to 30%. Consumed Power ~ Speed 3 Slide 13

14 Owens Corning 500HP fans. 3 x 500HP fans on fiber glass production line. Changed from damper to variable speed control. VSD Installed cost - approx $390,000. Energy savings - $225,000 per year Payback period - 1 year 9 months. Increased equipment life. Reduced maintenance / noise / vibration $225k on the bottom line every year after payback! Slide 14

15 Owens Corning Fan Drives Slide 15

16 Pumps Typically sized for maximum flow Systems typically operate at less than designed levels Flow control is normally achieved using an output control valve Centrifugal Pumps will be considered Slide 16

17 Pumping Systems Efficiency Average pumping efficiency is below 40% Over 10% of pumps run below 10% efficiency 70% is a typical design efficiency for a pump Major causes: Oversized pump & system not designed to run near pump s best efficiency point (BEP). Pump draws too much power - results in added vibration, bearings run hot with substantially reduced life, packing has short life, high rate of mechanical seal failure. Over-use of Bypass Valves & Throttling Valves Oversized valves make good process control nearly impossible. 65% of control valves <50% open, with many <30% open and 15% at startup. Source: Finnish study of 1,690 pumps at 20 process plants (Expert Systems for Diagnosis of the Condition and Performance of Centrifugal Pumps) Slide 17

18 Pump Operating Principles The Pump characteristics are Head (pressure differential across the pump) in ft or lb/in 2 Flow in GPM (this is what we want to control) Slide 18

21 VFDs and Pumps Control Pump Speed for process control Regulate Flow Save Energy Payback periods of 8 months to 2 years depending on: Duty Cycle Energy Costs Slide 21

22 VFDs and Pumps Provide significant energy savings when: Centrifugal Pumps are operated at low flow rates Existing system has bypass control Local electricity costs are high High utilization Low static head Any one item will often provide payback within 1 to 2 years. Slide 22

23 Unidrive M - Additional Benefits Elimination of expensive valves and valve controls Reduces power surges and stress associated with across the line starting Provides accurate flow control Longer pump and seal life Reduced wear Less audible noise Better power factor Slide 23 23

24 Fan & Pump Easy Energy Savings Estimator Data inputs: Duty cycle Rebates/Incentives Cost/kWh Motor efficiency Calculates: Cost Savings CO2 savings Payback time Slide 24 24

25 Overhauling Loads In some constant torque applications, process tension differences, downhill loads, or machine inertia may cause the driven machine to overhaul the drive motor In these cases the motor must provide hold-back torque to brake the load Historically this has been done with mechanical brakes, braking resistors or DC regenerative drives There are two energy savings solutions available with Unidrive M Slide 25

26 Unidrive M Regeneration Enhanced Active Front End (AFE) power quality converter (REGEN) Active Front End (AFE) to return excess braking energy back onto the power line, reducing energy costs instead of dissipating this energy as heat The AFE provides power factor control for power quality management and greatly reduces unwanted power harmonics Bi directional power flow Slide 26

27 Unidrive M Common Bus Unidrive M products frame 2 and up have DC bus terminals for easy connectivity Connecting multiple drives together allows power to circulate and the only energy required to overcome system losses is consumed Applications include winders and other continuous process lines Slide 27 27

28 Unidrive M Energy Efficiency Features Low losses, up to 98% efficient Fan speed intelligently managed to the loss requirements of low load Energy saving low power standby mode In some applications, drives can sit idle for significant periods; Unidrive M s reduced standby power saves energy Selectable hibernation of keypad and I/O 2kHz switching frequency Reduced drive losses Less requirement for motor dv/dt filters Slide 28
