Hello, I do not have much practical experience with pumps and have a question as to what physically happens when a system curve is at a point beyond the rated pumps curve. In other words, what happens when a pump runs out on its curve. Do you simply extrapolate the curve to the lower TDH and higher flow rate? Or can the pump even operate at this point? Would it shut down???
Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.
