Optimising Energy Consumption in Humidification Plants #Textile #EnergyEfficiency

Humidification plants in Textile (spinning) consume almost 15%-18% of the total electricity consumption. Out of which nearly 80% to 90% goes to circulating “air” and is consumed by significant number of Fans (Industrial), hence even if the H plant has automation it at most impacts the 10% to 20% of the total electricity consumption, delivering gains of around ~1%.

Carefully playing around with the air flow during different time zones (day wise) could deliver gains of around 5%-7% at no or minimum cost (VFDs are installed across all Fans)

  1. Knowing when to “manipulate” air flow

Operators do intervene and manipulate the air flow during the day based on in room conditions etc, however it is something that is mostly “reactive” in nature.  If we can collect data sets like Heat Load, In Room Condition etc from different data acquisition systems, we would be able to predict exact hours when the air flow could be optimised and to what %, this allows the operator to plan the changes and be more scientific and data driven without having to indulge in any complexity.

2.  Automating the “manipulation”

For organisations that do not want to have this done manually, we have developed integrated logic for providing feedback to VFD on control of air flow factoring in room and outside conditions.

In the right place at the right time and doing the right things?

We are seeing some amazing momentum in the Energy Analytics markets in India. Quite a lot of companies have been focusing on technology and building platforms, whereas we’ve taken a conscious approach to focus on developing IPs/Algorithms that can work on existing solutions and provide value addition to clients!

As we move to explore sectors like Commercial Buildings and add 2-3 industrial sectors in our list, we believe we are in the right place at the right time and perhaps doing the right things, would you agree?

Would be glad to have your feedback/comments/suggestions.

Yours Sincerely,

Ignoring potential benefits of Motor Performance and Maintenance Data?

Electric motors/motor driven systems consume 50-60% of Industrial electricity consumption and most industries generate huge data related to motor performance and maintenance, with Engineering/Maintenance department taking measurements of basic parameters etc.
Question is is your organization converting that data to insights that has potential to:-
  1. Guide on possible energy efficiency interventions?
  2. Advise on predictive maintenance of motors, avoid productivity losses?

E-Cube Energy has launched www.motor-tool.com that allows you to maintain all data pertaining to motor performance and maintenance on a #SaaS based cloud platform, accessible from anywhere.

Platform is simple but powerful in a way that it has the potential to disrupt the way industries look at managing all the unorganized data (related to motor performance/maintenance). Essentially allowing industries to organize data, store it centrally and analyse on the plattform to have insights that otherwise was not available!
We are providing free accounts to industries for configuration of 10 motors (For 3 Months Usage). To sign up for your Free account visit www.motor-tool.com
