Understanding Pumps: A Systematic Approach **14 SCEM PDUs [PUMPS-201705]


** 14 SCEM PDUs and PE PDU points to be awarded


Pumps take up 20-30% in a typical split of energy usage of motor driven equipment for an industrial plant. Commercial buildings, with lower demand for processes, it is between 15 to 20%. The large amounts of energy used for pumping makes pump systems a major candidate for energy savings. Pumping system is usually less complicated when compared to process or chiller side optimisation.


At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the performance characteristics of pumping systems
  • Gain an enhanced understanding of a system versus component approach to optimise the energy efficiency of pumping systems
  • Identify performance problems and systems that are most likely to yield energy efficiency savings
  • Develop an action plan to achieve energy efficiency improvements
  • Integrate continuous energy improvement into the management of pumping systems


Engineers, Energy Managers and Facility Managers in the Process, Electronics, Pharmaceuticals, Engineering, Food Manufacturing, Oil and Gas Sectors


  • Participants should be familiar with pump and system curves
  • Experienced in proposing or operating pumps
  • Experienced in engineering field is an advantage
  • Fresh graduates should read up on system curve before attending this workshop
