Ramachandra, TV and Subramanian, DK (1992) Energy efficiencies of end-use devices in an electro-metallurgical industry: A critical study. In: Energy Conversion and Management, 33 (10). pp. 899-912.Full text not available from this repository.
The inefficient use of energy in a large number of industries is slowly developing into a major energy crisis in the already power-starved Karnataka State, India. This study attempts to bring out the present inefficient pattern of energy use in an electro-metallurgical industry. It also brings out the considerable scope for energy conservation, especially by increasing the efficiency of the end-use devices used. This concept, when extended to other industries, wherein increasing efficiency of the end-use devices would provide the desired end results with small energy input. This, in turn, would result in a slower rate of energy growth as well as saving in energy use.
