Energy Efficiency Tool for Pumping Systems
This software tool was developed to assist pump station designers and operators in making energy efficient selections. The tool enables the user to select energy improvement alternatives from a list built into the software. The goal of the tool is to allow the user to evaluate different energy efficient alternatives for existing pump stations (existing operation versus two other alternatives) and new pump stations (two design alternatives). The comparison of alternatives is based on annual energy savings, GHG emissions reduction, and life cycle cost analysis results.
