Compressors powered by natural gas engines are increasing in popularity. Several major manufacturing facilities have already replaced the electric motors that drive their compressors with gas-driven engines in order to reduce their energy bills since the cost of natural gas is much lower than the cost of electricity. Consider a facility that has a 130-kW compressor that runs 4400 h/yr at an average load factor of 0.6. Making reasonable assumptions and using unit costs for natural gas and electricity at your location. determine the potential cost savings per year by switching to gas-driven engines.
