PUMPS USED AS TURBINES FOR ENERGY RECOVERY IN IRRIGATION

comunidad de regantes

In pressurized irrigation water distribution networks, it is necessary to guarantee a certain flow and a minimum pressure to all hydrants. In practice, this implies that the regulation of the manometric height in the pumps is made according to the most unfavorable hydrants, causing excess pressure in the rest. For this reason, the installation of …
