Abstract: The energy efficiency of a multi-pump system consisting of two low-power (0.75 kW) pumps operating in parallel mode and a single-pump mechanism (1.5 kW) is compared in this study. For this purpose, mathematical models, experimental data, and data retrieved from the manuals provided by the pump manufacturers are used. The single-pump system is fed by a single variable speed drive. A multi-pump system running in parallel mode consists of two pumps. One of them is driven by an induction motor connected directly to the electrical grid and equipped with a throttle. Another pump is actuated by an induction motor fed by a variable speed drive. The flowrate of the liquid in the multi-pump is controlled with the help of speed variation and throttling. In the case of the single-pump system the conventional speed control method is applied during the analysis. For both pump system topologies, the daily and annual energy consumption is obtained. As a result of conducted calculations, it was shown that the multi-pump provides 29.8% savings in comparison to the single-pump system in the case of a typical flowrate profile. © 2020 by the authors.
