Advanced Artificial Lift Methods Electrical Submersible Pump ESPs are multi stage centrifugal pumps. The two main components of a centrifugal pump are the impeller and the diffuser. The Impeller takes the power from the rotating shaft and accelerates the fluid. The diffuser transforms the high fluid velocity (kinetic energy) into pressure.

Advanced Artificial Lift Methods Electrical Submersible Pump Pump Head Definition Definition for the pump head: Head is an indirect measurement of pressure that does not depend on the fluid density. That means for low viscous fluids, the pump performance can b uniquely defined in terms of head. In other words, the pump performance, in pressure, depends on the density of the fluid being pumped, but when this performance is expressed in head, the pump performance is independent of the fluid being pumped Theoretical Head Developed by an Impeller

Advanced Artificial Lift Methods Electrical Submersible Pump The hydraulic horsepower is the energy transmitted to the fluids by the pump. The break horsepower is the energy required by the pump shaft to turn. Some of this energy is dissipated inside the pump. The ratio between the hydraulic horsepower and the break horsepower is the pump hydraulic efficiency. Theoretical Head Developed by an Impeller Horsepower

42
Advanced Artificial Lift Methods Electrical Submersible Pump In practice, a pump is tested by running it at a constant speed and varying the flow by controlling the choke. During the test, Q, DP, and the break horsepower are measure at several points. The DP is then converted to head and the overal efficiency of the pump is calculated. Based on these data, we can develop the pump performance. The performance curve of a centrifugal pump can be summarized in only one curve of head vs. flowrate for all low viscous fluids.
