In electrical distribution systems, everything is connected. From the utility service entrance, electrical power is distributed through transformers, switchgear, feeders, busways, and cables to various loads throughout the facility. However, load characteristics—which vary significantly according to building type—determine how the facility’s electrical distribution system behaves as a whole.

The rising cost of energy has been forcing facility owners and operators to find ways to economize. Electrical consultants and engineers can help their clients reduce the amount of money they hand over to the utility by applying money-saving innovations—one of which is how to minimize costs shifting peak electrical demand. Determining electrical demand charges is no longer a simple calculation.

Topics include:
• How electrical demand charges are calculated and applied
• Identifying and replacing inefficient loads
• Using metering and submetering to identify power usage peaks
• Shifting and staggering load starting times away from peak demand periods
• Making the most of a facility energy audit
• Implementing an energy management plan.

Speakers:
• Steve Yanke, PE, LEED AP, Affiliated Engineers Inc., Phoenix
