Abstract

This paper focuses on the analysis of the energy performance of key areas within university buildings, in order to identify equipment and actions that offer significant potential for energy improvements. An industrial power analyzer was used for power related measurements and data collection during two periods: one during the normal activities of the university and another during a holidays break. Data were then analyzed to determine the hours of high demand, and the power factor effects of individual loads, in addition, different manual 'ON-OFF' tests were performed to identify the equipment that contributes the most to the peak demand. Finally, recommendations were made in terms of the equipment that offers the greatest potential for improved energy savings in the near future.
