The end result is a very complex system with multiple layers that is difficult to map on paper or electronically, let alone plan in advance. Relative loads among substations are not evenly distributed. Figure 2-7 shows the percentage breakdown of energy used by each substation over a typical week. However, because the equipment used in different substations varies dramatically, substations with larger average loads may not necessarily be inefficient compared to their peers[1]. Typical energy users on the shop floor are ovens, environmental testing chambers, processing equipment with motors including machine tools, computerized test equipment, and work bench tools.
