Quiz 7. The pumpturbine system in the figure draws water from the upper reservoir in the daytime to produce
power for a city. At night, it pumps water from lower to
upper reservoirs to restore the situation. For a design
flow rate of 15,000 gal/min (or 33.4 ft3/s) in either direction, the frictional head loss is 17 ft. Estimate the power
in horse power (a) extracted by the turbine and (b) delivered by the pump. (Note:
and
; = 62.4 lbf/ft3; 1 hp = 550 ftlbf/s) Energy equation: Solution:
(a) For turbine operation, take the upper reservoir surface as the point “1” (i.e., upstream) in the energy
equation, and with
,
, and
, (+3 points)
Thus,
(+2 points) (b) For pump operation, take the lower reservoir surface as the point “1” (i.e., upstream) in the energy
equation, and with
,
, and
, (+3 points)
Thus,
(+2 points) ...
