Uniform Series Compound Amount—F/A The F/A factor is used to determine the amount F that an equal annual payment A will accumulate to in n years at i percent interest. If A (uniform annual payment) is known, and F (the future worth of these payments) is required, then Equation 4-6 is used. 1+i n–1 F=A× i F/A = 1+i n–1 i (4-6) (4-7) Uniform Series Present Worth—(P/A) The P/A factor is used to determine the present amount P that can be paid by equal payments of A (uniform annual payment) at i percent interest, for n years.

If F is known, and P is to be determined, then Equation 4-4 is used. P = F × l/(1 + i)n P/F = 1 a 1+i n (4-4) (4-5) 56 Handbook of Energy Audits Figure 4-2 Single payment present worth (P/F).

Money transactions are thought of as a cash flow to or from a company. Investment decisions also take into account alternate investment opportunities and the minimum return on the investment. In order to compute the rate of return on an investment, it is necessary to find the interest rate which equates payments outgoing and incoming, present and future. The method used to find the rate of return is referred to as discounted cash flow. Evaluation methods that use the time value of money include: • • • • Net Present Value Internal Rate of Return Equivalent Uniform Annual Costs (EUAC) Life Cycle Costing Time Value of Money Definitions Present Value (P)—the current value or principal amount.
