PUMP PERFORMANCE AND CHARACTERISTIC CURVES

Solution by DF Sozinando, Mechanical Eng. student at Vaal University of Technology

1- A pump operating at 1650 rpm is used to transfer water, the system characteristic is Hsys = 68 + 124.3 Q and the pump characteristic is given below:
Q

m3 s

0.075 72 55

0.15 70 82

0.2 66 90

0.25 60 93

0.3 50 91

a) Obtain the operating point of this pump ?


b) Obtain the most effective speed at which the pump should operate and the power required to drive this

pump ?
c ) Plot the characteristic of the pump at this new speed ? Solution: %1

a) The operating point of this pump at the operating speed is the interception between pump curve N 1 & system 1 curve, where can also be taken the reading of head(H) and the flow rate(Q) at the operating speed.

b) NB: Obtaining the most effective operation point should be at the interception between system 1 curve & system2 curve and take the reading of Q most.eff and Hmost.eff,and then use the AFFINITY LAWS to obtain the most effective speed ( N most.eff). m s
