Benchmarking Energy Performance Indicator System for Lifts

Solution Benchmarking Energy Performance Indicator System for Lifts
(REF : S-0276)
Features of Solutions
  • To justify the use of the most appropriate energy performance benchmarking parameter, <J/kg-m>, for a lift irrespective of type, brand and model by simulation.
  • To develop a prototype to measure the parameter with a long-termed goal to arrive at a threshold value for the Building Energy Code.
  • To develop added-on devices to facilitate the measurement, including energy, distance traveled and car load, without downgrading the safety standard of the lift.
  • To develop the wireless inteface between such devices and an in-machine-room computer.
  • To compile the software on the computer to display the parameter continuously and statistically and study the feasibility of additional functions such as brake monitoring.
Matched Trial Project
  • A list of previous publications will be submitted to justify the use of the parameter.
  • The prototype is an additional system to a lift, which may be rolled out to different lifts to find out the threshold value of the parameter.
  • The interface with a networked energy meter, a tachometer to measure direction and distance of travel, and two methods, current measurement and load sensing, to measure the instantaneous car load, are to be tested and developed..
  • A Wi-Fi network is to be developed for the in-machine-room computer to communicate with all on-car devices.
  • A dashboard will be developed on the computer to display the <J/kg-m> value both instantaneously and statistically. The framework is attached.
