Lab 4 electric power and energy bill

A. Part I: Adding up your energy usage
1. There is a link accompanying this lab in online campus. Go to the online campus page for the course and download a copy of the excel workbook, labeled PSCI 1030 Online – Lab 4 – Electrical Power & Energy Spreadsheet.
2. Fill in your name on the indicated spot on the sheet
3. Your goal is to estimate your monthly electrical energy usage and your monthly cost spent on electricity.
4. To lookup the power rating of a typical device (like a television, or desktop computer, or washing machine), you can go: https://energy.gov/energysaver/estimating-applianceand-home-electronic-energy-use
5. Fill in the device power rating and how long you use it every day for your device (Do you keep the computer on all day? Only run the washing machine for a half hour?)
6. Report Steps #4 and #5 for 20 devices (although if you are careful and include water heaters, lightbulbs, fans, refrigerator, microwave, chargers, etc… you will probably have more than 20 different types of electrical devices).
7. The total cost is estimated on the spreadsheet using the average power cost for Tennessee. If you know your power cost from your supplier (or want to look it up on your power company’s website) you can use that instead.
8. Print off your excel sheet to a PDF and upload to the assignment box in online campus.
B. Part II: Reading your electricity meter and estimating your bill
1. Your goal is to estimate your electricity bill by reading your home electric meter.
2. Locate the power meter for your home.
3. Record the kilowatt-hours on a given day. How you read the meter is going to depend on the type of meter you have (radial, ticker, or digital). Look up a resource on the web about how to read your type of energy meter.
4. Record the date and time you take the measurement. Sept/20/2020 65KWH
5. A day later (at about the same time if possible), make a second measurement of your kilowatt-hours. 55 KWH
6. The difference between the second and first measurements is the amount of energy you used in the time period between your two measurements. 10KWH
7. Based on your measurement, estimate how much electrical energy you use in an entire 30-day month. 1950 KWH
8. Using the total electrical energy usage for the month estimate your monthly electric bill. If you have a copy of your electric bill you can look at your cost per kilowatt hour. If you don’t have a copy of your electric bill you can use Tennessee’s average cost per kilowatt hour. Current billing cycle 1650 KWH
9. Write up a < 1 page description of your measurements and calculations in Word, and upload to the assignment box in online campus.
