Pump System Energy Efficiency Training
The Pumping System Assessment Tool (PSAT) helps pump users assess the efficiency of pumping system operations. PSAT uses achievable pump performance data from Hydraulic Institute standards and motor performance data from the MotorMaster+ database to calculate potential energy and associated cost savings. PSAT was developed for the U.S. Department of Energy and relies on field measurements of flow rate, head, and either motor power or current to perform the assessment. PSAT quickly estimates existing pump and motor efficiency and calculates potential savings.
