2 1. Target of the exercise - Basics of centrifugal pumps installed in pipe systems and energy conversion in the pumps; - Basic characteristic curves obtained with the help of measurements of certain parameters; - Show the difference in characteristics at pump operation in parallel and serial mode;. Basics Armfield demonstration unit FM1 is an example of radial flow rotary machine (centrifugal pump), in which fluid flows into the rotor at a given radius and flows out at greater radius. In the pump kinetic, potential and pressure energy is changed. Fluid flows axially through the inflow part located in the center of the rotor (Figure 1), then the direction of flow is changed in the radial direction by the action of the rotor blade. The kinetic energy of the fluid is increased within the rotor and converted to pressure energy at the outlet. Figure 1: Cross section of centrifugal pump The interdependence between energy comes from the Bernoulli equation, which is a simplified equation of the conservation of energy, which takes into account only those forms of energy in the process of significantly changing stations. At each point of the system is: c g p z const. (1) c z p ρ g fluid speed height pressure fluid density gravitational acceleration Centrifugal pumps - charactersistics Page: from 1

3 The total energy of the fluid remains unchanged if there is no inlet or outlet power. When fluid is in motion, the part energy is used to overcome the flow resistance (power outlet), with the pump the energy is transported to the fluid. During the initial and end point in the system the energy balance equation can be written m W Č W tr c 1 p1 c p m g z1 W ρ1 ρ mass of observed part of fluid energy transported to the fluid by the pump energy loss due to friction Č m g z W tr () If we are dealing with uncompressible fluid it can be assumed that the density is constant. So the equation for pump work is W P c c m g g 1 p p p 1 resist z z g g 1 In this energy loss was due to the flow resistance expressed by Δp resis pressure drop, which is a direct consequence of energy losses. The term in brackets is called the pump head and is directly related to the energy that must be supplied to fluid, so it could be moved from point 1 to point. (3) H c c 1 g z z 1 p p ρ g 1 Δp ρ g up (4) Pump head is at the same time a feature of the pipeline and pump. In the pipeline it represents the energy needed for the desired quantity (flow) of water, while at the pump it represents the energy that the pump is able to give the fluid at a given flow. Since the mass flow has significant impact on the pump and pipeline head, this dependence is expressed by the diagram for specific pipeline. This diagram is named pipeline or pump characteristic. At the same time pump head is criteria on the basis of which can be concluded if pump is required in the specific pipeline or not. First three parts of equation (4) can be positive, negative or equal to zero. H > 0, that means that pump is required in the system to provide desired mass flow; H = 0, the pump is not required, the flow will establish by its self; H < 0, the pump is not required, for desired fluid mass flow the reduction valve should be installed to inhibit the fluid; Centrifugal pumps - charactersistics Page: 3 from 1

4 3. The UNIT 3.1. Basic description The unit FM1 that is shown on Figure consists from two centrifugal pumps (1) and () driven by motors. Pumps are placed on the platform and connected to reservoir (3) via pipelines. The unit enables to study operation of: - Single pump - Two pumps serial mode - Two pumps in parallel mode That can be done by opening/closing specific valves: V1 (5), V (4), V3 (6) in V4 (7). Figure :The unit for study centrifugal pumps operation and characteristics The mass flow of the fluid through pumps is regulated by control valve V (8). The appropriate position of that valve enables changing total head and volume flow. To measure operational parameters required for further analysis appropriate sensors are mounted on the unit. The data are saved to computer via interface IFD6 (9). Centrifugal pumps - charactersistics Page: 4 from 1

5 3.. Instrumentation and sensors On the unit specific sensors are mounted: 1. Differential sensor SPW1 (10) Differential sensor consists from piezzoresistance sensor and converter that converts pressure difference on the orifice (11) to voltage. With pressure difference on known orifice we are able to calculate volume flow in different operational points.. Differential pressure sensors SPW3 (1 in 13) Differential sensor consists from piezzo-resistance sensor and converter that converts pressure difference in pump to voltage. From data total head and theoretical power is calculated. 3. Optical proximity sensors SSO1 (14 in 15) Optical proximity sensors measure rotational speeds of pump s rotors. 4. Temperature sensor STS1 (16) Temperature sensor is classical NiCr-Ni thermocouple. 5. Power mesters SWA1 (17 in 18) Power meters are inverters that enable speed regulation and measure electrical power of motors Program interface Graphical interface in the program on the computer enables observing operational parameters and pump characteristics. With the program we can store measured and calculated data in all operational points of the system. The main menu is shown on the Figure 3. Sensors and program interface unit FM1 enables to observe and save operation parameters: (on figure 3 shown by blue rectangle): Differential pressure on orifice to measure volume flow, Δp 0 (Orifice Pressure), Differential pressure between inlet and outlet pressure on pump 1, Δp 1 (Pump 1 Pressure), Differential pressure between inlet and outlet pressure on pump, Δp (Pump Pressure), Rotational speed of pump 1, n 1 (Motor 1 Speed), Rotational speed of pump, n (Motor Speed), Electrical power of motor 1, P em1 (Motor 1 Power), Electrical power of motor, P em (Motor Power), Water temperature, T (Temperature).

Characteristic curves of centrifugal pumps Characteristics of centrifugal pumps are usually presented in forms of total head H vs. volume flow, Power P vs. volume flow and efficiency η vs. volume flow for different rotational speeds of centrifugal pumps (figure 4). In diagram it is shown that efficiency peaks at specific volume flow and drops after, total head is falling from low to higher volume flows, where the drop is very significant. Optimal conditions correspond with point where efficiency is at peak value. total head power efficiency Figure 4: Characteristics of centrifugal pump for different rotational speeds (n a > n b > n c ) c flowrate b a c a b b c a With specific pump manufacturers gives diagram that represent pump working area.

Temperature is input data in following equation in C. ρ = 0, T 3 0, T + 0, T , (5) Water volume flow in the pipe Unit FM1 has orifice installed in the pipeline that enables to calculate water volume flow on the basis on pressure drop: C π d ρ p0 V D Δ (6) 4 ρ In eq. 7 C d = 0,74 is orifice coefficient, d = 0,04 m pipeline diameter, ρ fluid density calculated with eq.

General equation of total head for centrifugal pump is: p p1 H 1 g II I ploss 1 1* * g g 1 z z c c c c III IV (7) Centrifugal pumps - charactersistics Page: 8 from 1

9 Parts of equation represent energy differences between points 1 and. These parts of equation can be also negative that means that energy difference (pressure, geodetically or speed difference) between starting and end point helps to push fluid through pipeline. Parts of equation represent: I Pressure difference II Height difference III Kinetic energy difference IV Pressure drop because local and linear losses * 1 * 1 Slika 6: Points in pipeline system At observed system point 1 is at pump inlet and point at pump outlet. That means that eq. part I pressure difference between these two points is used, height difference is (eq. part II) z z 1 = 0,048 m. Because water velocities in points 1 and are equal, the eq. part III is 0, eq. part IV can be neglected due to very small energy losses between points 1 and due pressure losses Power and efficiency At given total head theoretical power is: P t m g H (9) Because compression is not ideal (isentropic), the pump uses internal power for compression that is bigger than theoretical power due to internal efficiency. P P t i (10) n In the pump the part of power is used for mechanical losses. Therefore effective power has to be introduced that is larger than internal power due to mechanical efficiency. Pn Pe (11) η Electromotor also has electrical and mechanical losses and uses electrical power to overcome these loses. Therefore electrical power is larger than effective power. m The overall efficiency is P em Pe (1) η em Pt Pn Pe Pt η ηn ηe ηem (13) P P P P n e em em Centrifugal pumps - charactersistics Page: 9 from 1

10 total head total head Faculty of mechanical engineering Laboratory for Heat and Power In this case power of single pump is calculated with eq. (9) with the help of total head. Electrical power is measured with inverters. Overall efficiency is calculated with eq. (13). 4.. Serial and parallel mode of two centrifugal pumps If single pump is not able to give adequate total head or volume flow, two or more pumps can be connected in serial or parallel mode. In that case total head is calculated as in single mode: a) Pumps in serial mode: H KOMB H 1 H (14) b) Pumps in parallel mode: H KOMB H 1 H (15) In the case of two pumps in series mode total head is larger at constant volume flow and in the case of two pumps in parallel mode volume flow is larger at constant total head (figure 7). serial setup single pump parallel setup flowrate Figure 7: Single pump total head vs. total head of two pumps in parallel and series mode 4.3. Pipeline characteristics While the pump characteristic shows the pump ability to supply energy to fluid at different flow rates, the pipeline characteristic means the amount of energy (total head), which is required to transport certain amount of fluid through pipeline. Characteristic of the pipeline shows the dependence of the total head from the volume flow for specific pipeline at specific operating conditions (figure 8). The required total head, according to equation (4) consists of four parts/articles. Parts I and II are independent of volume flow, while part III and IV flowrate IV III II I Figure 8:Pipeline characteristics with marked proportions of articles in eq.

11 total head Faculty of mechanical engineering Laboratory for Heat and Power pump pipeline A operational point Slika 9: Operating point and water volume flow regulation by variing pipeline characteristic(a) or pump characteristic (B) B flowrate are increasing by the square of fluid velocity or volume flow. When determining the characteristics of the pipeline the properties of the pipeline should not be changed, therefore we should not change the position of the red valve V, which regulate water volume flow. Different volume flows of water that is necessary to determine the characteristics of a pipeline in this case are achieved by varying the operating parameters and characteristics of the pump. This is achieved by varying the rotational speed of the pump. Pump with known characteristics in the pipeline system with specific characteristic will also be able to establish an operating point that is exactly specified by the intersection of the two characteristic curves (Fig. 9). If you want to change the water flow is necessary to change one of the characteristics. In this case the characteristic of the pipeline is usually changed by a valve that increases/decreases pressure loses in the pipeline, part IV of the equation (4). Characteristic of the pump is usually changed with the rotation speed of the pump. 5. Exercise instructions 5.1. Introduction Before measurements interface IFD 6 should be turned ON with red button, run the computer and appropriate software. Check if orifice coefficient is set to 0,74. Before putting pumps in operation, regulation valve V should be fully opened and valves V1, V, V3 in V4 closed. That set up enables pumps to be started with minimum load. After start blue valves should be properly set according to the case (single pump, pumps in serial or parallel mode). At the same time mode should be properly set also in the software (Mode). Before measurements check it out if new table is opened (button Next results), so data are not mixed with previous measurements. After measurements data should be saved in Excel file for further analysis. 5.. Experiments The exercise is divided in three parts and in every part pump and pipeline characteristic should be calculated in different operating conditions.

12 5..1. Characteristic of single pump With changing pressure losses with red regulating valve, determine pump characteristic in operation region of the pump from maximal to minimal water volume flow. According to maximal volume flow pick the gradient of volume flow change in the way that whole volume flow region is covered (approximately 10 points). Repeat measurements for rotational speeds of: a) 45 Hz b) 35 Hz c) 5 Hz Be careful that before every measurement rotational speed of the pump is constant. At low rotational speed rotational speed of the pump is increased during regulation valve closing. That happens because the load of the pump is decreased The characteristic of two pumps On the same way determine the characteristic of the two pumps in series or parallel mode at 45 Hz. With the help of blue valves set the system to appropriate mode, so pumps are working: d) parallel e) in series Pick the step that you will obtain 10 measuring points in whole operating region. Take into account that in parallel mode water volume flow is almost double as in serial or single Pipeline characteristic With blue valves the operation of one pump has to be set. The pipeline characteristic is obtained with rotational speed varying (with potentiometer on inverter). At maximal rotational speed (approx. 45 Hz) set the volume flow with red regulation valve to: f) 100 % g) 66 % h) 33 % and lower the rotational speed by 5 Hz to approx. 15 Hz Tasks 1. Set up the unit FM1 and make measurement according to instructions.. On the basis of results calculate total head, theoretical power and overall efficiency of the pump in all measured points. 3. Show results in graphical form. Centrifugal pumps - charactersistics Page: 1 from 1
