Pump station results when running hydraulic analysis

Is there a way to get results for a pump station element when just running a hydraulic analysis? All I see is results for an Energy Analysis.

Problem ID#: 69834


The results seen within the properties of the pump station are the only available results. Although many of these results are energy cost related, there are some that may be considered "hydraulic". For instance, the "Flow (total)" will show the total flow through the entire pump station for each time step, and the "Volume Pumped (cumulative)" will show the cumulative volume of water that has passed through the entire pump station. To view these results, you will need to compute an energy cost simulation, under Analysis > Energy Costs. You can still compute energy cost without entering any pricing information. For information on running this see the following links.

Water products: Using the Scenario Energy Cost and Energy Management tools in WaterGEMS and WaterCAD.

Sewer products: Using the Scenario Energy Cost tool in SewerGEMS, SewerCAD, and CivilStorm.

Of course, the other main purpose of the pump station element is to accommodate the Combination Pump Curve tool, which can be accessed from right clicking the pump station.

Beyond that, you would need to look at the properties of each individual pump to see for example the pump head, flow, relative speed factor, etc.
