SINAMICS PERFECT HARMONY Improves Utility’s Fuel Efficiency and ROI
SINAMICS PERFECT HARMONY Improves Utility’s Fuel Efficiency and ROI When a global electric utility was having difficulty finding a cost-effective way to better control its process across 20 different plants, Siemens stepped in with a solution that would optimize both power plant energy efficiency and process control.
Replacing the utility’s fuel-inefficient, high-emission mechanical flow control devices with SINAMICS PERFECT HARMONY variable frequency drives (VFDs) not only improved control; it also decreased auxiliary power consumption. The resulting energy savings yielded a reduced total cost of ownership that compared well with the utility’s 20-year lifecycle cost projections. By optimizing its process through VFD efficiency and reliability, the utility was able to meet output and emissions objectives across all of its plants — with increased profits as a welcome side effect.
