Australia actively regulates energy efficiency
► Adopts world’s best practice in efficiency
  standards and regulation
► Is committed to the reduction in emissions of
  greenhouse gasses
► Is committed to improving the energy
  efficiency of electrical equipment
  ►   through Australian Greenhouse Office (AGO) programs
  ►   minimum energy efficiency levels of domestic and industrial products
      are regulated

► Has mandatory Minimum Energy Performance
  Standards for three phase electric motors
                                                                        Driving the world
Why Motors ?
►Easy to identify and regulate for efficiency
►2-5% improvement potential per motor
►Small % increment, but many motors
►Motor driven applications comprise 48% of total
 industrial energy use & 25% of total commercial
 energy use*

MEPS (Minimum Energy Performance Standards)
 ►Is regulated through State Government laws
  and regulations
 ►Motors that fall below efficiency levels
  documented in the Australian Standard
  AS1359.5 are excluded from the market
 ►Is mandatory for suppliers
 ►Motors must be registered
 ►Compliance by regulators and Australian
  Greenhouse Office with random check testing of
  motors at NATA accredited labs

                                               Driving the world
►Came into effect October 2001
►MEPS1 minimum levels match European EFF2
 efficiency levels for 2 and 4 pole motors
►High Efficiency levels match European EFF1 for 2
 and 4 pole motors
►But MEPS1 extended further to also cover 6 and 8
 pole motors
►Covered the power range 0.73 up to 185kW

                                             Driving the world
The effect of MEPS1 on motor industry and motor usage

►MEPS 1 was a successful and straight forward
 program for industry
►Motors were already available that met the
 minimum (EFF2) levels
   ► Australia is a net importer of motors
   ► As a result of Eurpoean CEMEP & US EPACT – suppliers already
     had motor designs available to the market
►Benchmarking shows the success of the program
   ► a study of motor efficiency levels in 5 Asian economies in 2005
     *Peter du Pont, Jesper Vauvert, Benchmarking of Electric Motor Efficiency Levels in Five Asian Economies.
     Conference Proceedings EEMODS 2005

   ► this study concluded Australia had the highest average motor
     efficiency of the 5 economies

                                                                                                         Driving the world
►Success of MEPS1 drove a rapid move to MEPS2
►Regulatory Impact Statement commissioned in
 2003 to identify the next MEPS stage
►AS1359.5 was updated in 2004
►MEPS2 came into effect in April 2006
►MEPS2 was again based on world best practice+
►The ambitious targets of MEPS2 required more
 involvement of motor manufacturers for the
 success of the program

                                           Driving the world
MEPS2 - Risk Impact Statement 2003 identified

►Motors account for 48.75% of industrial energy
 use & 25% commercial energy use
►Greenhouse emissions attributable to energy
 used by electric motors – 9.4% to 14%
►MEPS2 would reduce greenhouse emissions by
 8900 GWH and 7.7MTon CO2
►Motor losses would need to be reduced 10% to
 20% to achieve the above
►70% of motors on the market at that time would
 not meet the proposed MEPS2 levels and would
 be excluded from the market
                                                Driving the world
The changes introduced by MEPS2 into AS1359.5:2004

                                       ► EFF2 dropped
                                         from April 2006

                                       ► EFF1 became
                                         MEPS from April

                                       ► A new High
                                         Efficiency level
                                         was defined
                                         based on 15%
                                         reduction of

                                                     Driving the world
MEPS 2 – What does it mean ?
►Motors imported into Australia
  ►after 1 April 2006
  ►must meet new Minimum Energy Performance
  ►to the levels set out in Australian Standard
     ►Tables A2 & B2, A3 & B3

►This affects
  ►2, 4, 6 and 8 pole motors
  ►in the power range 0.75 to 185kW

Standards and legislative requirements

                                         Driving the world
Australian Standard AS/NZS1359.5:2004
► Applies to three phase
  cage induction motors in
  2, 4, 6 and 8 pole design
► In the power range 0.75
  up to 185kW
► Stipulates minimum motor
  efficiency levels to two
  internationally recognized
  test methods
► Identifies changeover
► Current MEPS
  = Tables A2 or B2
► “Premium/High” Efficiency
  = Tables A3 or B3
                                        Driving the world
Why Two Efficiency Test Methods ?
►Both internationally recognised and used
►Test Method A (AS1359.102.3)
   ►involves direct measurement of stray load losses
      ►Based on IEEE112B & IEC61972 – “US method”
      ►is equivalent to the “new” IEC60034-2-1
      ►is more accurate and is expected to be adopted as preferred
       method in future

► Test Method B (AS1359.102.1)

   ►assumes a fixed 0.5% for stray load losses
      ►Based on the old IEC34-2 – “Old European method”

                                                               Driving the world
Two Test Methods
►Efficiency % in the test methods are different!

  ►The test methods treat stray load losses differently.
  ►eg. 4kW, same motor tested under different methods:
     ►Method A MEPS2006 = 87.0%
     ►Method B MEPS2006 = 88.3%

►At the next revision of the AS1359.5 standard it is
 likely that Method A, which is technically
 equivalent to IEC60034-2-1, will be the preferred
 test method

         Relative Distribution of Losses in Asynchronous Motors

 Note: small motors have higher I2R stator losses
          loss reduction means more slot area  larger motors

Motor Application
► “Highest” efficiency motors are “most” suited
   ►Many hours of operation daily
   ►Majority of operation at high load (75% +)
   ►Few start/stop and braking operations
   ►Combination with transmission elements that also have
    a high degree of efficiency
►Applications where “Highest” efficiency motors are
 “less” suited due to their higher cost, rotor inertia,
   ►Low utilization applications
   ►Start - stop (S3 duty) applications
   ►Applications with weight and/or space restrictions

Efficiency Gains / Energy Cost Reduction-
►Take the whole system approach.

   It can result in
     much higher
      efficiency gains
          cost savings

► Motor and drives suppliers formed a “representative
  committee” to highlight the “real world” impact of MEPS
► The intention of the forum is to be involved to ensure
  MEPS2 is successful and have a good working
  relationship with the AGO, but also to address issues that
  motor and drive manufacturers, suppliers and users face
► Manufacturers and Suppliers are the principal
  stakeholders that face the motor end users and OEMs
   ►are best placed to inform motor users, and also provide
    constructive feedback and criticism to the AGO and
