I don't believe we have any kits specifically with pump curves, but I can point you to a few things that may help. First of all, the Asset_Based_PI_Example-Kit_PowerGen_Load_Forecasting_has some AF comparisons of projected power (analogous to pump curves) to actual power produced.

Secondly, the latest version of PI Vision now has an xy plot, enabling a plot of manufacturer pump curves vs actual.

Finally, as you might have guessed, there's two ways you can model this in AF - either with tables with select data points of flow vs head -or- if the equations are known, defining them in analyses.

FYI, the AF Table with XY Plot method that Brian mentioned has been turned into a Knowledge Base article:
