pumps in sewerGems

Hello everybody,

I use the Explicit SWMM solver dynamic wave as a solver in SewerGems to model two pumps in parallel. But I see that the solver doesn't account for losses and uses only the last point of the pump curve. My question is to know if is it possible that the solver takes into account the curve of the pumps as input (taken into account the pressure drops) and is not limited only to the last point of the curve?

  • Hello Julia,

    The pump operation follows the pump curve setup in the pump definition. How are the parallel pumps set up? Pumps in parallel should have the same curve so as to work in parallel. What pump definition are you using?

    If you can share a snapshot of how you have set up your pumps in parallel it would help us understand the operation.

    Hope this helps.
