Figure 25  General 07 – Pressurized Pumping Stations

Water has to be pumped over intervening hills, from 3 small reservoirs to a main reservoir. Each small reservoir is at a different elevation. At each pumping station two pumps working in parallel are normally in service. 

During a period of low demand one pump at station No. 2 and one pump at station No.3 are isolated from the system, while maintenance work is carried out.

Click the Calculate button to find the flow rate which will be pumped during this extended maintenance period. The flow rates will be displayed on the drawing. View the results sheets or use the mouse to hover over a pipe, a node, or a component, to display individual calculation results in a pop-up pane.
