Download

Download a working version of the Virtual Energy Audit (VEA) to examine how it operates and some of the built-in features.

The Download VEA is a simplified version of an actual Virtual Energy Audit.  It has two boilers, one with air heater and the other with an economizer.  Primary inputs are the gold steam demand cells on “Schematic.”  Trim inputs, such as Ambient Air Temperature, Incoming Water Temperature, Blowdown Percentage, and others are the yellow cells throughout the file.  Input different stream demand to see the effects on Plant Efficiency shown in the blue cell on “Schematic” and the other blue result cells on “Overall.”

This file is password protected and is for the purpose of demonstrating how the Virtual Energy Audit works.  An actual VEA would be customized to the intended plant.

"The VEA was very instrumental highlighting the best system improvement measures we examined for campus-wide enhancements. It allowed competent 'apples to apples' comparison with assured validity. The process would have been less precise without the hour by hour computations afforded by the VEA."
