March - Modeling Pumps in GoldSim

Jason -

This webinar was presented by Jason Lillywhite in March 2012. Below is a brief summary and video recording of the presentation. You can also download materials used during the presentation by clicking on the link(s) at the end of the article.

This webinar covered an introduction to modeling pump station operations in GoldSim. In order to model a pump's behavior, some mathematical expression describing its pump head curve must be defined. In addition to the pump head curve, we must also understand how the pump is being operated. This understanding will help us simulate the pump operations in order to predict changes in future operating schemes and costs of the system. This webinar helps you build better representations of pump stations in your GoldSim model. The following concepts were discussed and demonstrated:

  • Pump head-discharge relationship
  • System head curves
  • Pump controls
  • Pump power and cost
