However, the analysis is made based on average and general usage by the consumer or business operator. 2.1 LIGHTING In every building and premise, lighting is the main electric appliance been used especially during night time. The lighting systems have several types from traditional tube light to spotlight. The wattage or power of the lighting system is also different such as 8watt up to 100watt for example. The higher the value of the wattage, the higher electrical power is needed. Lighting systems contributes up to 40% of the electrical consumption. Thus, it becomes one of the major areas to be managed and controlled in order to gain energy savings.
2.2 EQUIPMENT USING ENGINES Engines been used as part of the component to operate equipment or electric appliances. By depending on it, the equipment will consume more electricity and it ’ s getting worse if the operating hours are much longer. For example: equipment that ’ s using engines for household; refrigerator, air-conditioner, fans, washing machine, cooking equipment such as bakery and blender. As for business premises such as restaurants, the basic equipment using engines are air-conditioners, fans, chillier, refrigerators and kitchen equipment. As most of the equipment being used for direct or indirect, serving the customers, it will contribute up to 50% reduction of the electrical bill. KF1-DB Model Quorum™ System
3.0 QUORUM™ SYSTEM As a result from our research and study, we conclude all the information into a question and answer format. What is the QUORUM ™ solution QUORUM ™ System is an Electric Stabilizer and also known as a mini capacitor bank. It ’ s a part of the Power Management System which consisting of two modules namely QUORUM™ (Reactive Power Regulator) System and SKOLJD™ System (Intelligent Circuit Breaker). QUORUM™ System is the fourth generation of Power Saver device. -1st Generation : Plug-in System, -2nd Generation: Timer System ,-3rd Generation: Automatic System, -4th Generation: Intelligent System Knowing the facts about equipment consuming a lot of energy, some business operators try to replace them with green technology and energy saving equipment. However, the price per unit is still high and requires high investments to replace all equipment. This also requires high maintenance in terms of spare parts and services. 2.3 COMPUTER AND ELECTRONICS Nowadays, many business operators depend on computers and electronic equipment to ensure smooth, fast and accurate business transaction. Thus, the computer and electronic equipment becomes another contributor to electrical consumption. The consumption may be varying from 5 – 10% of the electrical usage. However, this is another factor that can be considered for long term energy savings.
What is the function of the QUORUM™ System? - To stabilize and regulates the incoming current by correcting the power factor. - Before the Installation of QUORUM ™ SYSTEMS, the diagram shows an unstable ‘Sag’ Frequency diagram . - During the Installation of QUORUM ™ SYSTEMS, provides a stable ‘Sag’ Frequency diagram What is “Power Factors”? - Also called true power. The ratio of true power (watts) to apparent power (Watts) to apparent power (Volt amperes). A relative measure of how well the current waveform matches the voltage waveform. - Ideally this ratio should be 1:1 or a power factor of 1 if the apparent power is twice the real power, the ratio would be 1:2 and the power factors would be 0.5 - Weak power factor is another form of system inefficiency that requires all the system components to be large in size.
What causes weak “ Power Factors ” ? - Weak Power Factors happens when the apparent power to be greater than the real power. This is called displacement power factor. - It is usually caused by the inductive load and capacitive load such happens in transformer and electrical engine. Why do we need to correct “ Power Factor ” ? - If the Power Factors are not being corrected, it means that you are paying more for your monthly electricity bills, for electricity that has not been utilized. For example, with the power factors of 85% in your premises, only 85% of the electrical energy being utilized. Where as the remaining 15% of the electrical energy remain unused. - If the power factors is are still not been corrected, it will cause the drop of the voltage due to the loss of power. The drop of voltage is due to the excessive flow of electrical current that will cause ‘ overheating ’ and damage on the inductive load.
What are the benefits of using the QUORUM™ system? As a result of our research and study, we found that we can use electricity more efficient and less wastage. This can lead to reduce the electricity bill: - Save electrical usage up to 30% due to lower ampere . - Act as a safety device and lightning surge arrestor . - By reducing fluctuations in your current, it will prolong the lifespan and improve the efficiency of your electrical appliances as result of stabilized current. - Voltage quality will be improved because the premises voltage would remain constant and line surge and line sags would be reduced or eliminated. - Minimize the risk of fire and short cut circuit by reducing heat development on wiring systems. - Greenhouse gas emissions will be reduced up to 20%. Is QUORUM™ Systems against the law? These are the following reasons why QUORUM™ Systems is not against the law: - The functions of the product is not considered as stealing the electric supply from the local power supplier companies. - The function of the QUORUM™ is not to tamper with local power supplier company reading meters. - The installation of the QUORUM™ is within the premise, not attaching with the meter or before it
How to prove savings in your electrical bill? As stated in the electrical bill, KWH is used to calculate the amount of your usage and billing -Kwh = power x hour -Power = voltage x ampere -Hour = The time of electrical consumption Thus, -Kwh = voltage x ampere x hour The installation of Quorum™ System will cause the ampere reduction while the voltage will not be affected and the hour is depending on the customer consumption. A reduction in ampere will cause a reduction in kwh, therefore will cause SAVINGS in electrical bill.
4.0 COST SAVINGS BY USING QUORUM ™ SYSTEM Based on the feedback we received from the clients and our clinical lab and field test, we concluded that the average cost savings using QUORUM ™ SYSTEM is between 10 – 30%. The result is different compared to one premise or building to another depending on a couple of factors such as: a) Type of equipment b) Quantity of equipment c) Operating hours using the equipment d) Indirect factors such as hot temperature which causing air-conditioners ’ engine running more. An average 1+ household uses yearly 3.500 kw power costing more then 1.200,= euro per year. A household with two children will increase power usage with more then 25%. The table below shows an indication of cost savings for a client which consumes on electricity an assumable 120 euro per month. The percentage of saving is 10%, 15% and 30% for monthly basis, 12 months and 60 months. Although, the average cost saving is between 10 – 30%, there are a few cases which the users save up to 40% and even 50%. All these results are caused by the factors that are mentioned above.
