ASME EA-2–2009 pdf download.Energy Assessment for Pumping Systems.
1 SCOPE AND INTRODUCTION 1.1 Scope This Standard covers pumping systems, which are def ned as one or more pumps and those interacting or interrelating elements that together accomplish the de- sired work of moving a f uid. A pumping system thus generally includes pump(s), driver, drives, distribution piping, valves, sealing systems, controls, instrumenta- tion, and end-use equipment such as heat exchangers. This Standard addresses open and closed-loop pumping systems typically used in industry, and is also applicable to other applications. This Standard sets the requirements for conducting and reporting the results of a pumping system assess- ment (hereafter referenced as an “assessment”) that con- siders the entire pumping system, from energy inputs to the work performed as the result of these inputs. An as- sessment complying with this Standard need not address each individual system component or subsystem within an industrial facility with equal weight; however, it must be suff ciently comprehensive to identify the major ef- f ciency improvement opportunities for improving the overall energy performance of the system. This Standard is designed to be applied primarily at industrial facilities, but many of the concepts can be used in other facilities such as institutional, commercial, and water and waste- water facilities. Assessments involve collecting and analyzing system design, operation, energy use, and performance data,and identifying energy performance improvement op- portunities for system optimization. An assessment may also include other information, such as recommendations for improving resource utilization, reducing per unit production cost, reducing life-cycle costs, and improv- ing environmental performance related to the assessed system(s). Assessment activities may include, but are not limited to, engaging facility personnel and provid- ing information about the assessment process; collecting and analyzing data on system design, operation, energy use, and performance; identifying energy performance improvement opportunities; and making recommenda- tions for system improvement and implementation in a written report. This report should document system design; quantify energy consumption and performance data; document the assessment process; show results, recommendations and savings projections; and improve facility personnel’s understanding of system energy use and operation. All system assessments start with identifying the ul- timate goal of the system. When the ultimate goal of the system has been established, the assessment continues to investigate how well-suited the existing system is to deliver the needed output from the perspective of both component selection and energy eff ciency. See Fig. 1. An assessment thus encompasses more than just looking at input and output of energy. This Standard sets requirements for: organizing and conducting a pumping system assessment; ana- lyzing the data from the assessment; and reporting and documentation of assessment findings. When contracting for assessment services, plant personnel may use the Standard to define and communicate their desired scope of assessment activity to third party contractors or consultants. This Standard differentiates between and has require- ments for three levels of assessments: (a) Level 1 (prescreening) assessment is a qualitative investigation that is intended to determine the mag- nitude of energy optimization potential and therefore determine the necessity for a Level 2 or Level 3 assess- ment. The Level 1 assessment is used to identify spe- cif c systems for further analysis. A Level 1 study may be performed prior to beginning the Level 2 or Level 3 study. Alternately, a Level 1 assessment may be per- formed in concert with the Level 2 or 3 assessments. In this case, if a given pumping system does not pass the prescreening criteria indicating a Level 2 or Level 3 as- sessment is required, the assessment process for that pumping system is considered complete. (b) Level 2 assessment is a quantitative (measurement- based) investigation meant to determine the energy sav- ings potential for at least one operating condition. This assessment is performed using data taken from the plant information systems or by using portable measuring de- vices. The measurements usually cover a limited amount of time, thus giving a snapshot of the operating condi- tions at the time of measurement. In systems with little or no variability, a Level 2 assessment shall be used to determine the savings potential.
