Energy Audits Instrumentation I: Electrical, Lighting, Temperature and Humidity Measurement

Energy audits are comprehensive evaluations of the actual performance of a plant’s energy using systems and equipment compared against the designed performance level or the industry best practice. The difference between observed performance and “best practice” is the potential for energy and cost savings. The purpose of this course is to review electrical, lighting, temperature and humidity measurement instruments used in energy audits in order to select and employ the appropriate instrument for your auditing needs.
