MV Process

As opposed to the more commonly used one-time or periodic M&V processes, continuous M&V was cost-justified because of the newly installed, extensive EMCS, which serves multiple purposes. In addition to controlling and optimizing equipment operation, it calculates energy savings continuously and tracks equipment performance. The contractor is employing a variety of M&V methods at NVFEL. Calculations are generally performed in local controllers for each piece of equipment, summed each day, and downloaded to the front-end PC at the end of each day and added to monthly totals.

In addition to the M&V functions, the EMCS has been programmed with a number of system diagnostics. These calculations serve to monitor system performance and detect system failures, serving as an effective platform for the ongoing long-term OM&R.
