ENERGY CONSERVATION THROUGH ENERGY EFFICIENT MOTORS IN PAKISTAN’S INDUSTRIAL SECTOR

M. H. BALOCH, M. K. MAHESHWARI, A. A. MEMON

Abstract


Pakistan is facing the electricity crises in present time. Globally, it is seen that many countries use the energy efficiency standards for electric motors on voluntarily and mandatorily regulation basis. This paper presents the analysis of motors in industrial sector where the existing motors are compared and replaced with energy efficient motors. The result comes with less than 4 years payback. For countries like Pakistan where 8 to 10 hours load shedding in urban areas and 10-12 hours load shedding in rural area with deficit of 6000MW to 8000MW reduce the socio-economic development, so it is necessary to optimize the efficiency of electric motors installed in different industrial sectors.
