In today’s climate of steadily increasing energy prices, poor control of motor efficiency has significant costs that are often “invisible” and uncontrolled. A motor management plan that has buy-in from all affected stakeholders will help realize the full value of your motor asset while saving energy, reducing downtime, lowering operating cost and lessening your “anxiety costs”. In this session review the evolution of motor efficiency and discuss why operating cost needs to be the basis for selecting a new motor versus only the initial purchase price. Learn from cases that illustrate the significant benefits of higher efficiency motors and motor selection tools available.
