    How do I bring a manufactures pump curve into pi to do a comparison to my pi calculated values?

      always looking for suggestions on efficiency  calcs for boilers, turbines/generators pumps

       

      thanks in advance

          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.
