Energy Concepts • Terms, definitions, Units • Differentiate Energy vs. Power • Define ‘energy system’ and preview a ‘lifecycle assessment’ • First and Second laws of Thermodynamics • Calculate Efficiency
4. ### This is an Energy System! SYSTEM: A set of components

working together to achieve a common goal ENERGY SYSTEM: uses an ENERGY RESOURCE to provide a SERVICE
5. ### “Energy System” -- Hot Pot Question 1: What is the

“SERVICE” that this system is providing? Question 2: What is the “ENERGY RESOURCE” that is providing this service?
6. ### “Energy System” -- Hot Pot Electricity Hot pot 800 ml

cold water Hot Water
7. ### Hot pot 800 ml cold water Energy Resource = ELECTRICITY

Energy Service = HOT WATER (NOTE: this is a BATCH system, NOT a FLOW THROUGH system) Question 3: How can we determine the ENERGY EFFICIENCY of this SYSTEM? - What do we know? - What do we need to know? - How to get the information? - What to do with the information? “Energy System” -- Hot Pot
8. ### Hot pot 800 ml cold water Electricity in Hot Water

ENERGY EFFICIENCY = Usable Energy OUT x 100% Total Energy IN Energy in Usable Energy out ENERGY EFFICIENCY = Heat Energy absorbed by water x 100% Electric Energy in “Energy System” -- Hot Pot
9. ### Q = m * Cp * ΔT Q = heat

energy absorbed by water (joule, J) m = mass of water (gram, g) Cp = specific heat, 4.186 j/g-˚C ΔT = change in temperature (˚C) Heat Energy Absorbed by Water (USABLE ENERGY OUT) ELECTRIC ENERGY IN = electricity used by hotpot appliance

13. ### While we wait … Definitions: Energy vs. Power My toaster

uses 1200 Watts, now THAT’s a lot of ENERGY!! ??? But my cable box only uses 400 Watts, that’s not so bad…
14. ### Definitions: Energy vs. Power Energy: A measure of the ability

to do work (“how much?” – finite quantity) Power: The rate at which energy is used (“how fast?” – variable amount)

Time
16. ### Hot pot 800 ml cold water Electricity in Hot Water

Energy in Usable Energy out Question 4: What unit would we use to describe the POWER consumed by the hotpot? (= POWER IN, at any given point in time) Question 5: What unit would we use to describe the ENERGY consumed by the hotpot? (=TOTAL ENERGY IN) “Energy System” -- Hot Pot

to any human modification. Examples? • extracted from ground - coal, oil, gas • captured from natural resources – wind, water, solar, biomass
21. ### Definitions: Primary and Secondary Energy Secondary Energy Source: Obtained from

transformation of primary energy source. Examples? • Electricity; gasoline or fuel oil; charcoal; hydrogen Also known as “ENERGY CARRIERS”
22. ### Electricity (measure) Hot pot 800 ml cold water, T1 Hot

Water Large amount of heat (thermal energy) : T2 T1 = 24.2 T2 = 95.0 m = 800800g Watts = 1270 time = 196 seconds Efficiency = m * Cp * ΔT = = 91 % watts * time (s) “Energy System” – Hot Pot Final Calculations
23. ### Losses (thermal energy) Electricity (measure) Hot pot 800 ml cold

water, T1 Hot Water Large amount of heat (thermal energy) : T2 What happened to the rest of the electric energy that went into the hot pot? “Energy System” -- Hot Pot
24. ### First Law of Thermodynamics ΔU = W + Q Second

Law of Thermodynamics ΔS > 0 Quantity remains the same Quality constantly decreases

26. ### Efficiency of an Energy System (Packing Peanut Efficiency Activity) •

We’ll need three groups of volunteers ◦ Group 1 = 3 participants ◦ Group 2 = 5 participants ◦ Group 3 = 7 participants
27. ### Efficiency of an Energy System Procedure: ➢ Each bag of

“energy” has been weighed and labeled in grams.
28. ### Efficiency of an Energy System Procedure: ➢ Define your system

process ◦ Group 1: Create a simple process ◦ Group 2: Multi-step process ◦ Group 3: Complicated process

30. ### Efficiency of an Energy System Procedure: ➢ Wait for the

signal to start (all teams will go at once). Your goal is to move all the packing peanuts as rapidly and efficiently as possible. ➢ When time is up, measure the mass of packing peanuts that makes it to your user. Note the amount of peanuts lost (e.g., on the floor) for each group.
31. ### Efficiency of an Energy System Procedure: ➢ Calculate the efficiency.

42. ### Revisit your Own Electric Bill How can you save energy

on a personal level? The Taiwan Power Company has great suggestions on their website. https://www.taipower.com.tw /en/page.aspx?mid=393
43. ### How to reduce your energy consumption https://www.taipower.com.tw/upload/384/384_02.png F. Amount Consumption

(kWh) G. Average of Daily Consumption
44. ### Taiwan Power Company Website Household Electricity Consumption Guide • Payment

Options • Electricity Service • Your Meter • Reading Bill • Power Outage • Energy Conservation Methods • Application Form https://www.taipower.com.tw/en/page.aspx?mid=393
45. ### Energy Conservation Methods Air-Conditioner: • Purchase an air-conditioner with a

high Energy Efficiency Ratio(EER) • Shut the window and door tightly. • Each 1℃ you raise the temperature = 6% savings of power consumption. • Set room temperature to 26~28℃ (78.8oF-82.2oF) • Clean the heat exchanger or condenser regularly. • Apply heat-insulated material and sunshade to reduce indoor heat capacity. https://www.taipower.com.tw/en/page.aspx?mid=386 https://2qaayg3yvidcn9imquz625sg-wpengine.netdna- ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/ductless-air- conditioner.jpg
46. ### Energy Conservation Methods Refrigerator: • Move refrigerators at least 10

cm away from walls. • Move refrigerators away from ovens and heaters. • Keep 20 % space empty inside to let the air circulate easily. • Reduce the number of times you open the refrigerator; each time you do, the compressor must operate 10 min to return to a low-temperature. https://www.taipower.com.tw/en/page.aspx?mid=386 https://www.lg.com/us/images/refrigerators/md05130240/gallery/medium01.jpg
47. ### Energy Conservation Methods Lighting: • Use natural sunlight sources •

Install high-efficiency LED bulbs with the HF electronic ballasts. • Paint the ceilings and walls in light colors to reflect natural sunlight https://www.taipower.com.tw/en/page.aspx?mid=386 https://target.scene7.com/is/image/Target/GUEST_2415de4b- abc2-4490-9f80-222f61348df9?wid=488&hei=488&fmt=pjpeg
48. ### Taiwan Power Company Website Rate Schedules When you go to

their website: https://www.taipower.com.tw/en/page.aspx?mid=317 https://www.taipower.com.tw/upload/317/2018032816540459 885.pdf you find sections B1 and B2 which suggest how you can avoid using electricity during expensive times of day. This helps avoid over-use by everyone at the same time.
