Module 3 gives an overview of electrical and pneumatic drives in the energy performance of a company. First the construction, stability and control of power grids are described in detail, with special attention to decentralized production grids. Secondly electrical drives are treated, discussing the recent evolution in engine technologies, and their potential. Attention is also paid to the choice of the correct drive in order to match the load (pumps, compressors, start/stop behaviour). The relation between energy use and control of continuous processes is lectured later. Next to the theoretical background, attention is paid to industrial aspects by presenting cases of daily industrial practice.
