UNIDO End User Course

SAEEC always endeavors to keep all our members up to date with knowledge sharing opportunities.

Available Courses:

CASO – Compressed Air Systems Optimization

 14-16 October 2024

CASO training exposes candidates to all common components of a compressed air system, and how to perform an associated assessment. Basic exercises, case studies, and practical examples are discussed in the class. The syllabus is for end-users, and is a pre-requirement for organisations and persons who wish to undergo in-depth training in compressed air systems.
On completion of the CASO two day course candidates will be able to:• Initiate the development and implementation of CASO measures• Apply knowledge to new and existing systems• Identify potential optimisation opportunities• Determine how to achieve cost savings and energy efficiency through the appropriate application of CASO• Assessing CASO opportunities

EnMS – Energy Management Systems

08- 10  April 2024

Knowledge and skills that participants attain through the Energy Manager Systems Implementation (ENMS) Training include the following:• A good understanding of the key elements of an EnMS aligned with ISO 50001, includingpolicy, roles and responsibilities, energy planning, implementation and operation, performance checking, and management review;• A good understanding of the benefits of EnMSs and ISO 50001;• A good understanding of the resource requirements for EnMS implementation;• The ability to put together a high-level project management plan (time, resources, etc.) to implement an EnMS within their organization; and• The ability to initiate the development and implementation of an EnMS.

PSO – Pumps Systems Optimization

  • 19-21 July 2024

The UNIDO Pump Systems Optimisation (PSO) end user course enables delegates to recognise the benefits of PSO by learning how to assess pump systems and identify potential optimisation opportunities. It is an introduction to the preferable applications of the various pump types in terms of their performance and design and how they interact with each other in various configurations. Delegates will study the system within which the pump operates, and understand the impact of the design of the system on the performance of the installed pump, and assess and quantify the performance.
By gaining an understanding of different control methods, and maintenance and operational best practices, you will be able to make initial determinations of the potential benefits of the opportunities that may be visible. The methods of control, including the various types of valves and variable speed drives, will be discussed and examined as to their application.
The participants will be guided in the skills and methodology of determining how to achieve cost savings and energy efficiency through the appropriate application of correct pumps and types in new and existing systems.
The standard ASME assessment guidelines will be discussed and developed so that the participants will learn to work to a set of specific methods.
The participants will also learn to make operational cost calculations and be able to quantitatively and qualitatively assess pump systems and their potential improvements. This will enable them to initiate the development and implementation of PSO measures and projects.


MSO – Motor Systems Optimization

  • 07-09 November 2023

The Motor System Optimisation (MSO) End User training consolidates delegates’ understanding of motor system optimisation and promotes their technical capacity for MSO-orientated actions. It enables delegates to initiate the development and implementation of MSO measures and projects in their own companies.
Delegates will recognize the benefits of MSO and learn how to qualitatively assess motor systems and identify potential optimisation opportunities.  The participant will also learn how to effectively present MSO benefits and opportunities to management.
Learning Objectives During the training, the participants will:• Define motor and motor system• differentiate between motor types• define motor energy performance and efficiency, and understand the factors that influence it• learn about standards relating to motor system energy efficiency• recognize the benefits of MSO• assess different control methods• discuss how to conduct MSO• prioritize enterprise-wide MSO opportunities• calculate the cost-savings of MSO

FSO – Fans Systems Optimization

07-09 February 2023

The Fan System Optimisation (FSO) Introductory course will introduce candidates to key terms and concepts of Fan Systems Optimisation. The “systems approach” to optimization will be discussed as well as the different types of fans, their uses in specific situations; impeller types and how it affects the fan performance of fans as well as fan control methods and their advantages and disadvantages. Fundamental concepts such as pressure, flow, power and efficiency will be explained and a general understanding of fan curves and system curves will be established. Areas for efficiency improvement will be discussed as well as the prioritization of these opportunities.  The target audience for this course includes any candidate (technical or non-technical) that is involved or may potentially be involved with fan systems and wants to get a basic understanding of fan systems optimization. This course is the first step in the FSO discipline and for those with further interest can be followed by the FSO End User course and the FSO Expert course.


PQ – Power Quality

  • TBA

The Fundamental Principles of Power Quality is presented as an end-user course for delegates with a basic knowledge of electrical systems, and will cover standards in power quality, regional regulatory practices, rights of users and obligations of utilities, and a legal perspective to protecting users of electrical energy.
The course will include :
Southern Africa context to power quality (PQ)fundamental principles of power quality in terms of voltage and current waveform quality,voltage waveform eventsan introduction to reporting of power quality measured against the NRS048 code and international standards.

SSO – Steam Systems Optimization

  • TBA

The Steam System Optimisation End User course provides  delegates with in-depth technical information on undertaking an industrial steam system energy assessment and making improvements to industrial steam systems. In addition, it provides hands-on training in the use of steam system optimisation  tools in the field, while doing an industrial steam system energy assessment.
