The test pump is installed in a piping network forming a closed loop with a pressure- and temperature-controlled reservoir. The primary performance information is based on pressure readings at the pump suction and delivery flanges, and another set of pressure readings taken upstream and downstream of a flow measurement device, typically a flow nozzle or a sharp-edged orifice plate, positioned downstream of the pump. In addition, power-measuring instrumentation is required for the pump torque and speed or, alternatively, to monitor the electrical power input to a calibrated drive motor.

14. 8 must be used to meet a flow-pressure rise specification in metric units. Convert the equation for its pumping performance into SI units and a. 0. b. 0. c. Develop a curve of Q versus Kres with a diameter of 10 cm and 1 < Kres < 5. 15. 1 (Q in m3 /h, H in m, and P in kW). 0. Assume that the diameter of the flow system is 5 cm and neglect other resistances. 16. 9 at the stated conditions. Compare this result to the pressure rise with water as the working fluid. 17. 15 to estimate the BEP power and efficiency in SI units.

45) The (isentropic) efficiency of a compressor is the ratio of the fluid-specific energy to the work done on the fluid. 7, except that stagnation pressures and temperatures are used so that a “total” efficiency results. 30 Fluid Machinery: Application, Selection, and Design For turbines, the isentropic efficiency is the ratio of actual work to ideal work, so ηt = 1 − (T02 /T01 ) . 11) can also be used by replacing the static pressure with the stagnation pressure. The performance curves for compressors and turbines are qualitatively similar to those for incompressible flow machines (pumps, fans, hydraulic ˙ turbines); however, the performance parameters are mass flow rate (m), stagnation pressure ratio (p02 /p01 ), shaft power (Psh ), and isentropic efficiency.
