Electrical Utility Efficiency
    Pumping System Training
The pump training facility has 2 pumps one connected with VFD and the other with trimmed impeller.The pumpsare driven by a 5.5 kW motor. All the relevant parameters,flow, pressure, speed, power etc. can be measured and captured through a data logger.The online data is projected on to a screen through a LCD projector.The practicalenergy efficiency training carried out in the laboratory are:

• Determining the head-flow characteristics of pumps
• Effect of speed control with VFD vs. throttling
• Effect of impeller trimming on power, flow and head
• Effect of parallel operation of pumps
• Understanding NPSH and cavitation effects
