A Review on Energy Management in Textile Industry

K Harish


In textile mill, electricity consumption is in increasing trend, due to modernized machines and continuous usage of the equipment’s in inefficient operating parameters. Textile sector may be considered as one of the largest industrial sector in India and at the same time it is also one of the oldest sectors in the country. Even after a lot of technological development globally, most of the mills are using the same old technology. The energy cost is around 15% - 20% over the production cost and it stands next to raw material cost. Hence now a day’s area of focus is towards energy consumption at load end and by optimizing the efficiency of the motor. Although for the last few years process of modernization in textile industries are underway but still the pace is slow. So, in order to include major players of textile sector as well as other energy intensive industries for energy efficiency movement. In this paper, influence of various areas of energy consumption and process of optimization in textile mill on energy conservation is discussed with practical data.
