Abstract            :  An optimum energy conservation technique for water treatment plant, both in term of costs and environmental impacts, have been studied and implemented primarily at Mahasawat Water Distribution Pumping Station, Thailand. This article proposes an optimum scheduling of 4-variable speed pumps operating under their actual conditions. We apply affinity laws with simple measures of performance; delivery pressure, power, and speed; to a group of pumps before scheduling them in parallel as 4-3-2 pump configuration. Energy costs are computed in term of specific energy consumptions (SEC’s) to compare them for all configurations. This proposed technique is tested and the test results demonstrated that it can reduce energy consumption by more than 12%. 

Keywords         : energy conservation; variable speed pumps;
water distribution pumping; specific energy consumption
