1 , Tech Report 2: Electrical System Existing Conditions Oct 12, 2013 Yucheng Lu Lighting/Electrical AE Faculty Consultant: Dr. Shawn Good

2 Executive Summary This report is a summary of my study about the existing electrical system of Perot Museum of Nature and Science. The report is divided into three major parts. Part 1: This part of the report focused on calculates preliminary electrical load as well as identifying code requirements that applies to this project. The main target is to understand the ideal electrical system this project should have. Part 2: This part of the report focused on understanding the current electrical system built into the project, including the building load, materials used and how is the system integrated. Part 3: This part of the report compares the content of part 1 and part 2, thus discusses potential changes can be made to save operation cost and increase energy efficiency. Overall, the existing building is carefully design that meets all the relevant electrical code. Change such as a secondary storm water tank and additional landscape vegetation are suggested to increase the energy efficiency. 1 P a g e

3 Part 1 1. Preliminary Electrical Load Calculation Building Area: 180,000 Square Foot Estimated Lighting Unit Load: 4 Volt-Amperes / Square Foot Estimated Receptacle Unit Load: 2.2 Volt-Amperes / Square Foot Estimated Power Factor: 0.9 Estimated Mechanical Unit Load: 7 Volt-Amperes / Square Foot Estimated Special Equipment Unit Load: 2 Volt-Amperes / Square Foot Total Load = 180,000 * 15 = 2700KVA I = 1000 * 2700/(3^0.5*277)=5525A 2. Power Company 4 Charge Energy is assumed to be the power company providing utility service 3. Rate Schedule By balancing the consideration of cost control and operation flexibility, I recommend a 12- month rate with 277V service voltage. 2 P a g e

5 alternate source shall be available whenever the emergency generator is out of service for major maintenance or repair. 6. Special Occupancy Space NEC 530: Motion Picture Projection Room 7. Potential Special Equipment NEC 620: Elevator, Escalator NEC 640: Audio Signal Processing, Amplification, and Reproduction Equipment 8. Priority Assessment Flexibility will be the major concern since scene change often occurs for different exhibition, which accompanies equipment change that require different load. Redundancy will be considered for similar reason above. A straight forward electrical system can speed up installation of new equipment. Long Term Ownership Cost should be considered to increase the profit of the museum. Reliability and Power Quality are secondary factors that will help to maintain operation. Initial Cost is less of concern knowing that long term operation is planned. 9. Optional Back-up Power Equipment in the bio lab might need back-up power to keep potential samples alive. Therefore an extra ATS is suggested as well. 10. Special/Communication System Fire Alarm Security 11. Building Service Requirement Telephone 12. Major Equipment Equipment Schedule attach on next page 4 P a g e

7 Part 2 1. Actual Connected Building Load Lighting Largest Motor Other Motor Receptacle Continuous Heating Noncontinuous Kitchen Diverse Main Board MSB Main Board MSB Emergency Board Total building load is 4990KVA, total balanced three phase amps is 4880A. 2. Actual Power Company Rate The Actual Power Company Rate is assumed to be a 24 month plan with 4 Charge Energy 3. Building Utilization Voltage Building: 480Y/277V will be the utilization voltage provided to the building. Lighting fixtures: Among 57 luminaires used in this project, 54 of them operate under 277V single phase power and 3 of them operate under 120V single phase power due to the characteristic of halogen luminaire. Receptacle: Receptacles in the museum provide power in 120V, three phases. Mechanical: HVAC equipment operates under 120V, 277V single phase as well as 208V and 480V three phases. Plumbing equipment operates under 120V single phase and 480V three phases. VAV equipment operates under 277V single phase and 480V three phases. 5 P a g e

8 Special Equipment: Elevator and Escalator in the building operate under 480V 3 phase power. Biolab equipment in the museum consumes 120V single phase power. Pump for fire protection operates under 480V three phase power. 4. Emergency Load Total Connection Load: 1610 KVA Balanced Three Phase Amps: 812 Amp Voltage: 480Y/277V 3 phase Power Source: 750KVA Generator Fuel: Assume to be Natural Gas for environment concern Size: L = 150 in, W = 58 in, H = 85 in, referencing FG Wilson generator of same output Distribution: Emergency power is delivered from the generator to the emergency board, then transferred into four automatic transfer switch as well as one manual transfer switch, from where the power will be supplied to specific fire pumps and lighting boards. 5. Special Occupancy Requirement NEC 530: Motion Picture Projection Room The room can be found on level 1 floor plan 6. Special Equipment NEC 620: Elevator, Escalator Located on floor plan level 1 to level 5 NEC 640: Audio Signal Processing, Amplification, and Reproduction Equipment Located on level 1 floor plan 7. Equipment Documentation Switch Board: 277V, 3 phase Panel Board: 277V, 3 phase & 120V, single phase Transformer: Interior floor mounted, 1500KVA, 13.2 KV primary/277v, 3 phase secondary Step Down Transformer: Interior wall mounted, 145KVA, 120V, 3 phase Feeders: Minimum size used is 1 C, Maximum size used is 4 C Conductor: Cooper Conduit: 3#2, 3#4, 3#6 3#600kcmil, etc. Assume PVC Conduit is used Receptacle: 20A, Assume Commercial Grade Receptacle Face Plate: Stainless Steel Motor Starter: Fused, toggle switch or VFD with integral fuse 6 P a g e

9 UPS: There is no dedicated equipment room found with UPS system applied 8. Optional Back-Up Load Currently no equipment requires optional back-up load other than systems required by code. Recommendations are made in the next section to provide optional back-up power to certain equipment. 9. Special Communication System Fire Alarm Security 10. Building Service Equipment Telephone 11.

11 Part 3 1. Load Comparison The estimated load is 5225A, larger than the actual 4990A load. 2. Power Company Comparison Bounce Energy offer a better rate at 6.8 cent / KWH 3. Building Utilization Voltage Building: 277V ensures an efficient power transfer with limited current loss. Therefore, no change is suggested Lighting fixtures: Lighting voltage is specified per product, voltage should not be changed Receptacle: Receptacle voltage must be kept the same to match operation load of typical electronic devices Mechanical: Mechanical voltage is specified per product, voltage should not be changed Special Equipment: Special equipment voltage is specified per product, voltage should not be changed 8 P a g e

12 4. Emergency Power System Current emergency power system meets code standard, no change is required 5. Equipment Comparison Current equipment meets code standard, no change is required 6. Optional Back-up Power Bio lab equipment consumes 17 KVA, which could be moved from regular board to ATS board for backup power supply. This change adds 1% additional emergency load that will not require resize of generator. An additional ATS will be added into the system for emergency power distribution. 7. Cost Reduction Some luminaires can be replaced to higher efficacy luminaries to increase energy efficiency. For example, if we replace AL-13, a 70W halogen luminaire, with a 9W LED lamp while having the same output, we can save 80W*2000Hr (rough operation hour per year)*10c=\$16 saving per year. 8. System Integration Current mechanical system collects all the storm water and stores them on the landscape level. When needed, storm water will be pumped to higher level. I believe if we set up a secondary tank on the roof that serves upper floor, we can reduce the energy used to pump water all the way up. 9. Cost Saving Strategy The theater of the museum on level 1 is partially embedded into the landscape plinth. The soil on the landscape become a natural heat barrier that suppresses the heat loss in the winter as well as heat gain in the summer. This design can be enhanced by plant shrubs on the landscape. The root of plant helps to increase the soil density, make it a more efficient heat barrier. Leaves of the plant also help to block sunlight from striking directly on the landscape. 9 P a g e
