Multiple VFDs in the System. Do they Work Together or Fight?

Abstract:
Controlling one variable speed pump is one thing, controlling two, three or more variable speed pumps is quite another.  Many systems today benefit from having two or more parallel connected pumps, primarily as an energy saving measure for systems that have widely varying flow rates.  How do we ensure smooth pump control both in terms of meeting overall system performance objectives and optimized energy savings?  This webcast will give you some insight on parallel pump control and provide some guidelines so that the right questions are asked of the pump system controls provider.

Participants will learn and/or understand:

  • The principle of parallel pump operation with VFD control
  • How smooth, energy efficient pump sequencing can be achieved
  • Tips on how to avoid set-point overshoot and “hunting”

Keywords:
Parallel Pumping with VFD’s, Variable Frequency drives with multiple pumps, Duplex pump systems, triplex pump systems, Multi-pump control, variable speed pump control, VFD hunting

Open and Closed Systems – NPSH (Why Should Engineers Care?)

Abstract:
Cavitation and Net Positive Suction Head are two of the most vexing problems encountered when selecting and applying centrifugal pumps. We will focus on NPSH issues in commercial HVAC applications, but the principles involved apply to applications in all market sectors. This webinar will take the mystery out of the topic. In plain, simple language - and with examples taken from both open and closed loop piping systems - the whole issue of NPSHa versus NPSHr will be clarified and reduced to a few basic principles and equations. By following these guidelines, you will be able to select pumps with confidence that cavitation will not occur.

Participants will learn and/or understand:

  • Define NPSHr and NPSHa
  • Cite the consequences of inadequate NPSHa
  • Perform the calculations for NPSHr versus NPSHa - for both open and closed loop piping systems in commercial HVAC applications
  • Define cavitation and determine under which circumstances it will occur

Keywords:
Altitude, Atmospheric pressure, Barometric pressure, Boiling point, Cavitation, Centrifugal pump, Closed loop piping, Elevation, Friction head, Friction loss, Impeller, Impeller eye, Impeller vane, Net Positive Suction Head, NPSH, NPSH3, NPSHa, NPSHr, Open loop piping, Suction, Suction head, Vapor pressure

Grundfos Webinar: What Standard 90.1 Means for Plumbing Engineers

This Grundfos webinar will present what Standard 90.1 means for plumbing engineers. It covers the 2010 edition of Standard 90.1 added several new energy efficiency requirements, and many Authorities Having Jurisdictions (AHJs) are beginning to use this version of the code. Plumbing engineers must understand these updates in order to correctly size and select pumping systems for service water applications. By understanding these new requirements, plumbing engineers will have the knowledge and expertise to specify pressure boosters into nonresidential buildings. Although presented with the plumbing engineer in mind, this Grundfos webinar also will help plumbing and mechanical contractors, supply house employees and manufacturers learn more about ASHRAE Standard 90.1.

 

What You Will Learn

Understand the three basic requirements of ASHRAE Standard 90.1, Section 10.4.2 Understand how diaphragm tanks help saving energy and improve comfort Learn when and where pressure sensors should be specified and placed within a building.
