Description:

Motors use more than half of all electricity, yet efforts to improve efficiency and cost-effectiveness of drivepower systems have received relatively little attention. This volume outlines a systems approach encompassing high-efficiency motors, optimized controls, improved component monitoring and maintenance. Full application of the measures described here can cut U.S. electricity demand by 27% to 40%, save motor users and utilities billions of dollars, reduce pollutant emissions, and enhance productivity.
