Understanding Pumps: A Systematic Approach


Course Summary

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 systems is usually less complicated when compared to process or chiller side optimisation.

Course Objectives

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
• Understand the performance characteristics of pumping systems
• Gain an enhanced understanding of a systems 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

Mr.Kumarason S. Kandia

With more than 12 years working experience in system optimisation of chiller, pumps and compressed air systems, Mr. Kumarason S. Kandiah has vast experience in conducting Investment Grade Energy Audits (IGAs), energy efficiency retrofits of chiller plants and feasibility studies at national and international level.

Kumarason has been involved in designing and retrofitting Air Conditioning and Mechanical Ventilation (ACMV), pumps, fans and compressed air systems for commercial and industrial applications. He co-developed a building monitoring system specifically inclined towards improving chiller efficiency that has been operating for more than 10 years at mission critical sites.

Kumarason was a Qualified Energy Services Specialist (QuESS - Singapore) until 2015 and he is also a member of ASHRAE, Board of Engineers Malaysia and Institution of Engineers, Malaysia.
