ISO/ASME 14414:2015 sets the requirements for conducting and reporting the results of a pumping system energy assessment (hereafter referenced as "assessment") that considers the entire pumping system, from energy inputs to the work performed as the result of these inputs.
The objective of a pumping system energy assessment is to determine the current energy consumption of an existing system and identify ways to improve system efficiency.
These requirements consist of
- organizing and conducting an assessment,
- analysing the data from the assessment, and
- reporting and documenting assessment findings.
ISO/ASME 14414:2015 is designed to be applied, to open and closed loop pumping systems typically used at industrial, institutional, commercial, and municipal facilities, when requested.
ISO/ASME 14414:2015 is focused on assessing electrically-driven pumping systems, which are dominant in most facilities, but is applicable with other types of drivers, such as steam turbines and engines, and drives such as belt.
