Fan System Assessment Tool – 2-hour webcast
Availability: Online webcast
A two-hour webcast on the use of the DOE's Fan System Assessment Tool (FSAT) is available that introduces the tool and presents the basics—and the benefits—of using it to target opportunities for energy savings in your plant.
Fan System Assessment – self-paced workshop
Availability: Online self-paced workshop
Optimizing industrial fan systems can take on many forms, but any fan optimization project must meet the needs of the process. This self=paced workshop highlights the benefits of fan system optimization and examines fan system performance characteristics and practical issues concerning measurement data. The session introduces the FSAT software. This powerful analysis software helps you quantify the potential benefits of configuring fan systems for optimal performance, calculate the amount of energy use by your fan system, and estimate fan system efficiency. Learn how the software works, what data is required for FSAT, and how to interpret assessment results.
In addition, this workshop includes discussion to help you:
- Calculate the cost of operating fans in your facility
- Understand the interaction between the fan curve and the system curve
- Analyze the optimization potential of fan systems
- Create an action plan to improve fan system efficiency and reliability in your plant.
