Electricity Energy Saving Assessment for Induction Motors towards Sustainable Energy Practice in Indonesian Small and Medium Industry
This paper presents energy saving assessment on induction motors which are particularly being utilized in the small and medium industry. A walk-through motor energy audit is carried out in a typical type of industry in Indonesia to collect some important data. Strategy for annual motor energy saving is assessed involving energy efficient motor, variable speed drive, and capacitor bank. In addition, analysis is carried out to find impact on energy efficiency indicator as well as CO2 emission due to energy saving. It is revealed that the combination on selected motor saving strategy may lead to reduce electricity energy by around 10%, equal to around 38% CO2 emission mitigation. Besides, energy efficiency indicators are found to be improved. Hence environment emission is significantly reduced by applying appropriate motor energy saving for small and medium industry.
