Initially, the first step in energy (efficiency) management is to get an overview of the actual operational behavior, the status of technical building services/equipment etc. The BACS, technical documentation and energy cost bills have to be studied and analyzed in detail.
Measurement equipment (used in energy analyses):
Several high quality portable measuring instruments are used to measure energy consumption and ‘reveal’ the building’s actual operation. Additionally, process simulation software (IPSEpro, TrnSys) allows for mass- and energy balancing as well as simulation of different system’s configurations within the building services engineering.
Fluke 1735 Three-Phase Power Logger:
The Fluke 1735 Power Logger is the ideal technician’s power meter for conducting energy studies and basic power quality logging. Set the Power Logger up in seconds with the included flexible current probes and color display. The power quality meter measures most electrical power parameters.
Flexim Fluxus F601
Portable instrument for non-invasive, quick ultrasonic flow measurement with clamp-on technology for all types of piping and additional temperature sensors. This allows us to determine volume-, mass- and heatflow of most liquids. We mainly use it to control energy consumption in systems without energy meters or calculate efficiency of refrigerators.
The Testo 435-3 multi function meter is designed to carry out multiple measurements that are necessary to check and adjust ventilation and air conditioning systems and assess the quality of indoor air. We have temperature, humidity, pressure and air velocity sensors.
