Engineers and architects-here is your detailed, step-by-step guide for implementing a comprehensive energy conservation program for any existing building. Easy-to-use nomograms, tables and figures speed you through otherwise difficult calculations, and show you how to identify specific energy conservation opportunities. You'll see examples of all the documents you'll need to record and tabulate your survey data for easy assessment. You'll find out what specific areas of the building offer energy conservation potential, including lighting systems, the building envelope, the distribution system, HVAC equipment, the domestic water system, and the power system. The final chapter presents a model building energy study which takes you through each phase of program implementation.Capacitor correction is relatively inexpensive both in material and installation costs. Capacitors can be installed at any point in the electrical system, and will improve the power- factor between the point of application and the power source.
