2. A 230/1000V 50 Hz, single phase transformer has the following test data:

Open circuit test (L.V.)

Primary voltage = 230V

Primary current = 1.30 A

Input power = 115W

Analyse methods for reducing energy consumption

Determine the cost of energy used in a system

5. The energy consumption for a small factory is given at the end of the brief (see additional information.)

a) Three commercial tariffs from an energy supplier are shown below. Using these (or other commercially available tariffs), determine the most suitable tariff for the factory detailed. Your answer must be supported by mathematical analysis.

traiff A

Standing charge per quarter of £21.95 and every unit is charged at 19.93 ppu

Maximum demand is charged at £6.95 per KVA per annum

traiff B

All units are charged at 25.70 ppu

Maximum demand is charged at £5.95 per KVA per annum

traiff C

First 1500 units in a quarter is charged at 21.82 ppu

All additional units in the quarter charged at 18.49 ppu

Maximum demand is charged at £7.45 per KVA per annum

b) Suggest changes to the working practices of the factory detailed in order to reduce the energy consumption and the cost of the energy bill.

Addition information:

Factory Details:

The factory is fed and metered at 400/230V three-phase and neutral. It consists of a main factory area, a storage warehouse for incoming raw materials and final products awaiting delivery and a small office block.The main intake position is situated at one end of the factory and sub-main feeds are taken to the warehouse and office block.

The factory is on one level with large open doors at one end where goods and materials are moved to and from the warehouse. It is constructed of brick walls with a high single pitched roof and few windows.

The warehouse is a tall building of similar construction to the factory with two roller shutter doors, one for deliveries of raw materials and one for distribution of the finished product.

The office block is a brick building with a flat timber and felt roof. It has recently been refurbished. New double glazed windows were fitted and the electrical supplies and the lighting scheme were brought up to modern standards.

Electrical Loads:

1 x three-phase 45kW electrode boiler for heating a large volume of water to a temperature of 95oC for product washing; the water is then flushed down the sewerage system

1 x three-phase 22kW processing unit operating with an overall power factor of 0.71 lagging

7 x three-phase 9kW pump motors operating at 0.82 power factor lagging

12 x single-phase 2.25kW motors, various uses, operating at 0.78 power factor lagging

16 x single-phase 3kW wall mounted forced convector heaters operating at 0.92 power factor lagging

9kW of fluorescent discharge lighting operating at 0.76 power factor lagging using magnetic choke switch start circuits fitted with standard discharge tubes

Warehouse:

5kW of high bay high pressure mercury vapour lighting operating at 0.75 power factor lagging

7 x 3kW block storage heaters

Office:

8kW of single-phase power feeding computer equipment and vending machines

3 x 2.25kW storage heaters

2.5kW of high frequency electronic ballast fluorescent lighting operating at 0.97 power factor lagging

Energy Consumption Profile:

The three graphs shown indicate the load pattern for the whole factory complex. The load profile for Monday to Friday and Saturday and Sunday can be assumed to be reasonably constant throughout the year. Seasonal changes can be identified using the third graph as this shows the loading based on a weekly maximum demand.

Load Profile - Monday to Friday

It can be taken that the initial cost of static, loss-free capacitors, including that of the necessary control gear is £65.00 per kVAr.  The annual interest and depreciation charges total 12% per annum.

The total number of units consumed during the 12 month period 2011 was 384,125.
