• ### fluid dynamics Relationship of Pump Power to Flow Rate

09/08/2017· I read two different things about the relationship between power (P) of a pump and flow rate (Q). The most common thing that I found was simply that Q is directly proportional to P (power-of-pump). But in Wikipedia: Affinity Laws, it states that Q is proportional to shaft speed (S), and P is proportional to the cube of shaft speed (S^3). This would indicate that Q is proportional to the P^(1/3).

These laws state that the flow rate or capacity is directly proportional to the pump speed; the discharge head is directly proportional to the square of the pump speed; and the power required by the pump motor is directly proportional to the cube of the pump speed.

• ### Would a linear relationship between pump speed and the

Pump speed and flow rate are directly proportional over a wide range. Eventually suction tries to cause negative pressure and you don't have a all-liquid system anymore. Things get a bit more complicated for a impeller type pump. Pump speed and flow rate will be mostly linearly proportional of some region of operation, but there are other effects. Things start getting non-linear fast when cavitation happens, for

The relationships of rotodynamic pump performance parameters of flow, head and power absorbed to speed are known as the affinity laws. The equations that explain these are known as affinity laws. Flow rate (Q) is proportional to rotational speed (N), Q ∞ N. Head (H) is proportional to the square of the rotational speed, H a N 2.

• ### Pump Affinity Laws Engineering ToolBox

If the speed of a pump is increased with 10%. the volume flow increases with 10%; the head increases with 21%; the power increases with 33 %; If we want to increase the volume flow capacity of an existing system with 10% we have to increase the power supply with 33%.

22/09/2018· Pump output power is called as Water Horse Power (WHP ) or Hydraulic power and it is useful work delivered by the pump. and is usually expressed by the formula. Hydraulic power Ph = Flow rate X Total developed head X Density X Gravitational constant. Pump Efficiency is the ratio of pump input and output power.

• ### Flow Rate and Its Relation to Velocity Physics

The relationship tells us that flow rate is directly proportional to both the magnitude of the average velocity (hereafter referred to as the speed) and the size of a river, pipe, or other conduit. The larger the conduit, the greater its cross-sectional area. Figure 1 illustrates how this relationship is obtained. The shaded cylinder has a volume

Centrifugal pumps generally obey what are known as the pump laws. These laws state that the flow rate or capacity is directly proportional to the pump speed; the discharge head is directly proportional to the square of the pump speed; and the power required by the pump motor is directly proportional to the cube of the pump speed. These laws are summarized in the following equations.

• ### VARIABLE SPEED PUMPING Energy

The performance of a pump can be expressed graphically as head against flow rate. The rotodynamic pump has a curve where the head falls gradually with increasing flow. However, for a PD pump, the flow is almost constant whatever the head. It is customary to draw the curve for PD pumps

• ### Experiment (9): Centrifugal pump Introduction

-Q curve shows the relationship between the power input to the pump and the change in flow rate through the pump. Outside the optimum operating range of the pump this curve flattens, so that a large change in pump power produces only a small change in flow velocity.

• ### What is the relation between the pressure and the flow

There is an inverse relationship between pressure and flow. For a given Horsepower, if you increase the pressure, the flow will decrease. If you decrease the pressure, the flow will increase. For a given Horsepower, if you increase the pressure, the flow will decrease.
