Siemens Answers with SinaSave

Energy Savings Calculator for Energy-efficient Drive Technology

On the basis of system parameters, Siemens SinaSave calculates how great the savings potentials are for your specific drive applications - savings of up to 70 percent are possible. This innovative and user-friendly energy efficiency software may be used at no charge. SinaSave also functions as an ROI calculator, showing you how quickly your investment in an energy-efficient motor for line supply operation or a drive for variable-speed operation will pay off. Frequently, the payback period is just a few months.

For line operation, SinaSave’s energy savings calculator determines the cost saving and payback period for Siemens energy-saving motors in the high efficiency classes IE2 and NEMA Premium compared with motors of standard efficiency class IE1 or EPACT, individually selected, or common motors – as part of a complete system analysis.

For drives operation, SinaSave takes into account all necessary plant- and system-specific parameters as well as the values required for the process. The program also analyzes other basic data including the number of operating days and shifts and the load profile throughout the day and year - crucial when calculating the potential energy that can be saved. On the basis of the system-specific data, SinaSave selects the optimal drive system, calculates the price of a suitable drive, and determines the energy requirement of the variable-speed drive system compared with all other alternative concepts.
