The effiecincy of a device refers to the proportion of energy....
That is usefully transferred
7 of 11
The greater the proportion of energy that is usefully transferred
the more efficient and cost effective a device is.
8 of 11
Pay back time
can be calculated as £600/£60 per year=10 years
9 of 11
Effiecincy values are normally expressed as
Either a percentage or a decimal
10 of 11
Effiecincy can be calculated by using this equation.
Efficiency = ufeful energy or useful power out/ total energy x 100%
