1. VFD, motor strategies for energy efficiency

A variable frequency drive (VFD) often is specified to save money by reducing energy consumption in pumps, fans, compressors, or any other motor loads that may be found in a typical building. These best practices will provide the engineer with information on how to specify a VFD to meet load conditions while achieving efficiency. 

2. What's new in ASHRAE 90.1-2013

Nearly 150 addenda were proposed for ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2013.

3. Designing laboratory ventilation systems

Proper ventilation in labs is required to promote and maintain safety and protection to life and property.

4. 2014 40 Under 40 program

Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine is dedicated to encouraging and recognizing the most talented young individuals in the engineering community supporting the building industry. We want to shape the future of young engineers, and will do so by recognizing and encouraging them through mentoring articles in the magazine, young engineer networking events, and the 40 Under 40 program.

5. Schneider Electric poised to "change the industrial landscape" after Invensys acquisition

Now that the Invensys acquisition deal is complete, Schneider Electric will combine the two firms' unique discrete and process industrial portfolios, positioning it as a global market leader. 

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on www.csemag.com during the week of Feb. 2-Feb. 9, 2014.
