Centrifugal Pump Simulation

Centrifugal Pump Simulation

Centrifugal Pump Simulation

Hello Fellow Engineers

I am trying to model a centrifugal pump using the SimHydraulics Module. The pump that I need to simulate has the following specs:

GPM: 600
Head: 100feet
RPM: 1725
Imp. Dia: 11.9inches

I am very new to this and have looked at the various simulations and literature provided by MathWorks. I couldn't understand how to translate the specs of the actual pump to the simulation parameters, specifically brake power vector.

I would appreciate if anyone could point me in the right direction!

RE: Centrifugal Pump Simulation

I have decided that I will use polyfit to find the coefficients for the approximation polynomial method. I will make a table between pressure and flow rates from the pump and calculate the coefficients using that. Does anyone here know if that's the easiest/correct way of modeling the pump in Simulink?
