    • A Comparison of Demand Side Management Data Assessment Procedures for Small and Medium-Sized Manufacturing Plants 

      Matheidas, M. T.; Heffington, W. M. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1995-04)
      Two methods of obtaining demand reduction data from industrial energy audits are compared. One very simple method calculates demand savings by dividing energy savings in kilowatt hours by the operating hours of the plant. ...
    • Demand Side Management (DSM) Through Absorption Refrigeration Systems 

      Chao, P. Y.; Shukla, D.; Amarnath, A.; Mergens, E. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.eslwin.tamu.edu), 1992-04)
      The emerging concept of Demand Side Management (DSM) has achieved considerable importance in the 90's. It is estimated that since 1977, the number of utility-sponsored DSM programs have expanded from 134 to nearly ...
    • DSM Load Growth Through Electrotechnology Application Assistance 

      Merchant, D. G. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1994-04)
      This paper will discuss how a new "win-win" approach is emerging that improves both customer competitiveness and utility energy sales as both DSM and the utility's relationship with its customers mature. While most DSM ...
    • Electrical Energy Monitoring in an Industrial Plant 

      Dorhofer, F. J.; Heffington, W. M. (Energy Systems Laboratory, Department of Mechanical Engineering, 1994-04)
      The Energy Systems Laboratory (ESL) at Texas A&M University is currently monitoring the electrical energy use of a metal fabrication facility in Houston, Texas. This paper deals with the installation of the data ...
    • Emerging Technologies for Industrial Demand-Side Management 

      Neely, J. E.; Kasprowicz, L. M. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.eslwin.tamu.edu), 1993-03)
      Demand-side management (DSM) is a set of actions taken by an electric utility to influence the electricity usage by a customer. Typical DSM activities include rebates for higher efficiency appliances and discounted electric ...
    • The Impacts of Utility-Sponsored Demand-Side Management Programs on Industrial Electricity Consumers 

      Rosenblum, J. I. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1994-04)
      One of the most pressing issues in electric utility regulation today is the extent to which demand-side management (DSM) programs should be promoted by utilities. DSM refers to energy-efficiency or conservation measures, ...
    • Industrial DSM Programs: Low-Cost Resource and Smart Customer Service 

      Jaussaud, D. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1994-04)
      Demand-side management (DSM) is a resource that helps utilities use their system more efficiently and/or postpone the need for expensive new plant construction. But demand-side management also has another function. By ...
    • Industrial Rates and Demand-Side Management Programs 

      Kasprowicz, L. M.; House, R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.eslwin.tamu.edu), 1993-03)
      The industrial sector in Texas is large and energy intensive. Industrial sales constitute a major portion of total sales for several utilities in Texas. Industrial demand-side management (DSM) can be used by utilities to ...
    • Potential for Energy Efficient Motors and Variable Speed Drives in the Petroleum and Chemical Industry 

      Fendley, K. A.; Pillay, P. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1994-04)
      This paper presents an in-depth survey of motors in a refinery and a chemical plant. The potential for energy and demand savings is then determined and hence the dollar savings using a sliding rate structure currently ...
    • Unique University and Utility Team Reduces Energy and Pollutants 

      Smith, K. L.; Traill, D. A.; Sears, R. L.; Spielman, M. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1996-04)
      In 1992 the Center for Energy Systems Research of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Arizona State University (ASU) Facilities Management Department formed a unique Demand Side Management (DSM) team ...
    • Utility Demand Side Management- DSM Lessons: Experience is the Toughest Teacher 

      Gilbert, S. M. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.eslwin.tamu.edu), 1990-06)
      Most utilities first became actively involved with energy conservation in the early 1980s with the federally mandated Residential Conservation Service (RCS) program. Legislation mandating a similar effort directed toward ...
