ABSTRACT
This paper presents a physically based model and formulation for industrial load management. Lighting is an essential service in all the industries. The power consumption by the industrial lighting varies between 2 to 10% of the total power depending on the type of industry. Innovation and continuous improvement in the field of lighting, has given rise to tremendous energy saving opportunities in this area. Lighting is an area, which provides a major scope to achieve energy efficiency at the design stage, by incorporation of modern energy efficient lamps, luminaries and gears, apart from good operational practices. It provides merely to indicate some of the options that energy auditor can consider when performing an analysis of an industry. Energy conservation and exploration of new energy avenues are the well accepted solution to fulfill the growing industrial demand in future. Implementation of energy audit can improve the plant efficiency and thereby reducing the energy wastages.
