Learn more about pump system performance characteristics. This course discusses performance problems encountered in everyday applications. The workshop covers practical issues involved in field measurements of fluid and electrical data and presents the Pump System Assessment Tool (PSAT) used to assess the performance of pump systems. Learn how the software functions, what data is required, how to use the software when measured data are not available, and what the assessment results mean.
Participants will receive the latest training information for use in their work place.
All EVERSOURCE and NGrid engineers and their end-users
