# Pumps and Pumping Stations

## Pumps add energy to fluids and therefore are accounted

for in the energy equation
Energy required by the pump depends on:
Discharge rate
Resistance to flow (head that the pump must overcome)
Pump efficiency (ratio of power entering fluid to power supplied
to the pump)
Efficiency of the drive (usually an electric motor)

Pump Selection
System curve indicates TDH required as a function of Q
for the given system
For a given static head, TDH depends only on HL, which is
approximately proportional to v2/2g
Q is proportion to v, so HL is approximately proportional to Q2 (or
Q1.85 if H-W eqn is used to model hf)
System curve is therefore approximately parabolic

Example. Generate the system curve for the pumping scenario shown
below. The pump is close enough to the source reservoir that suction
pipe friction can be ignored, but valves, fittings, and other sources of
minor losses should be considered. On the discharge side, the 1000 ft
of 16-in pipe connects the pump to the receiving reservoir. The flow is
fully turbulent with D-W friction factor of 0.02. Coefficients for minor
losses are shown below.

The sum of the K values for minor losses is 2.52 on the suction side
and 5.52 on the discharge side. The total of minor headlosses is
therefore 8.04 v2/2g.
An additional 1.0 v2/2g of velocity head is lost when the water enters
the receiving reservoir.

System curve

Pump Selection
Pump curve indicates TDH provided by the pump as a
function of Q;
Depends on particular pump; info usually provided by manufacturer
TDH at zero flow is called the shutoff head

Pump efficiency
Can be plotted as fcn(Q), along with pump curve, on a single graph
Typically drops fairly rapidly on either side of an optimum; flow at
optimum efficiency known as normal or rated capacity
Ideally, pump should be chosen so that operating point corresponds
to nearly peak pump efficiency (BEP, best efficiency point)

Pump Selection

## At any instant, a system has a single Q and a single TDH, so both

curves must pass through that point; operating point is intersection
of system and pump curves

## Pump System Curve

System curve may change over time, due to fluctuating reservoir levels,
gradual changes in friction coefficients, or changed valve settings.

## Pumps often used in series or parallel to achieve desired pumping

scenario
In most cases, a backup pump must be provided to meet maximum flow
conditions if one of the operating (duty) pumps is out of service.
Pumps in series have the same Q, so if they are identical, they each
impart the same TDH, and the total TDH is additive
Pumps in parallel must operate against the same TDH, so if they are
identical, they contribute equal Q, and the total Q is additive

pump moves the
operating point up
the system curve,
but in different ways
for series and
parallel operation

## Example. A pump station is to be designed for an ultimate Q of 1200

gpm at a TDH of 80 ft. At present, it must deliver 750 gpm at 60 ft.
Two types of pump are available, with pump curves as shown. Select
appropriate pumps and describe the operating strategy. How will the
system operate under an interim condition when the requirement is for
600 gpm and 80-ft TDH?

## Flow rate (gpm)

1200

Either type of pump can meet current needs (750 gpm at 60 ft); pump
B will supply slightly more flow and head than needed, so a valve
could be partially closed. Pump B has higher efficiency under these
conditions, and so would be preferred.

## Flow rate (gpm)

The pump characteristic curve for two type-B pumps in parallel can be
drawn by taking the curve for one type-B pump, and doubling Q at
each value of TDH. Such a scenario would meet the ultimate need
(1200 gpm at 80 ft), as shown below.

## Flow rate (gpm)

1200

A pump characteristic curve for one type-A and one type-B pump in
parallel can be drawn in the same way. This arrangement would also
meet the ultimate demand. Note that the type-B pump provides no
flow at TDH>113 ft, so at higher TDH, the composite curve is identical
to that for just one type-A pump. (A check valve would prevent reverse
flow through pump B.) Again, since type B is more efficient, two typeB pumps would be preferred over one type-A and one type-B.
