This short course covers the fundamentals of pumping systems design with special emphasis on the importance of pump, equipment and systems interaction. The course will be delivered by practitioners with over 100 years of combined experience in the field.
Course Objectives: the Pumps and Pumping Systems course will enable you to:
- have a comprehensive knowledge of pumping technology, principles and design
- gain a thorough understanding of interactions between equipment and the effects of operation
- confidently carry out a systemic hydraulic analysis of a simple pumping system
- specify and select the most appropriate pump for a given application.
- System Analysis: Steady and Transient Analysis of Simple Network and Bulk Transfer Pipelines
- Pump Principles and Design: Rotodynamic and Positive Displacement Machines
- Pump Operation: Steady State Pump and System Matching, Flow Control
- Pump Selection: Testing and Standards
- Drives: Electric Motor, Turbine and other Drives, Matching Drives to Pumps
- Flow Control Valves: Principles, Selection and Sizing
- Case Studies: Pump Intake, Bulk Transfer System
- Demonstration of System Analysis Software
- Demonstration of Pump Performance and Operation in a Laboratory
Who should attend?
The course will be of particular interest to engineers employed in the process industries (including oil and gas, water and power) who are involved in pump system design, pump and equipment selection. It will also benefit those who work in operation and maintenance of pumping systems. Those with an engineering or applied science degree will receive the most benefit from the course or those with relevant industrial experience.
