1013 Sizing and performance features of rotary and reciprocating positive displacement pumps
Cooper Paul, Wang Chaowei
An overview of some popular rotary and reciprocating positive displacement (PD) pump types is given with the objective of presenting and comparing the respective sizing relationships and performance features. Reciprocating pumps discussed are the piston and plunger types. Rotary pumps addressed are gear (external and internal), vane, lobe, screw, and liquid ring pumps. To put the relative pump sizes in perspective, attention is fixed on the rotors or reciprocating elements of PD pumps, just as impellers indicate the sizes of rotodynamic pumps. The size of a PD pump is found from a dimensionless combination of displacement flow rate, rotative speed and diameter. The flow rate, head (or pressure rise) and power are related through the component efficiencies. The cavitation coefficient, often close to unity, connects the rotor tip speed or piston speed with the required NPSH, which can also be affected by the pressure rise of the pump due to leakage across the internal clearances. Operational effects due to cavitation, ingestion of gas or abrasives, and viscous and nonNewtonian fluids are discussed.

Yang Minguan, Wang Xingning, Gao Bo, Zhang Ning, Wang Jun
The structural mesh and k-ω turbulence model were used to study the unsteady flow cha-racteristic of whole flow field in a centrifugal pump and to analyze the unsteady excitation characteristic under different working conditions.This study focused on the analysis of pressure pulsation at different locations under different working conditions and a hydrodynamic forces on the single blade, discussed the influence factor that induced the radial loading of the single blade under each revolution.It shows that, the blade passing frequency is the dominant frequency both in the pressure pulsation frequency spectrum and the impeller radial force spectrum, while the shaft frequency is the main excited frequency in the radial hydrodynamic force on a single blade.The radial force on the single blade increased with the flow, the force on single blade under low flow rate conditions is nonuniform obviously while it′s uniform close to the rated conditions or BEP.By analyzing the unsteady excitation characteristic of the single blade,the phenomenon of jet-wake at the trailing edge close to the tongue can change the blade loading significantly,the radial hydrodynamic forces is sensitive and directly related to the change of the flow structure near the volute tongue.

1029 Hydraulic design and numerical optimization of guide vane of AP1000 model nuclear main pump
Xie Rong , Qi Heng , Shan Yujiao, Jin Weinan
Based on self-design of impeller of AP1000 nuclear main pump,the upright guide vane was designed using foundational hydraulic methods. In order to reduce the hydraulic loss in the vane flow passage, two different schemes were proposed to optimize the vane design after analyzing the CFD computational results. The first one was to directly optimize the upright guide vanes design. And the other was to redesign the upright guide vanes as twisted spatial type to match up the impeller and subsequently to optimize the vanes. In the space guide vanes design and optimization process, two different solutions were adopted to parameterize the model, and the sample database were generated. With the hydraulic efficiency of impeller and guide vane being selected as the optimization objective, ANN and genetic algorithms were used to repeatedly optimize the blade profile of space guide vanes, and finally the guide vanes were obtained with better hydraulic efficiency matching with the impeller. The influence of different numbers of guide vane on the hydraulic efficiency was also discussed to provide the theoretical guidance and reference in hydraulic performance.

Tang Lingdi, Yuan Shouqi, Tang Yue, Gu Zhe, Wang Hui
Frequency control technology is an effective way in energy-saving for pump unit. In order to obtain the effect of frequency converter harmonic on the efficiency of speed regulating pump unit, the experimental setup was designed based on the analysis of harmonic generation mechanism and the influence of harmonic on pump unit. It was an open test apparatus and included a high frequency electrical parameter measuring instrument with filtering function, a virtual instrument, etc. In this test apparatus, research object was a typical self-sucking centrifugal pump, the high-frequency electrical parameter measuring instrument was connected to the output of the inverter, and the torque-speed sensor was connected between the motor output shaft and the self-sucking centrifugal pump. Before and after filtering, hydraulic performance parameters and electrical parameters of the self-sucking centrifugal pump unit were collected, the efficiency of the pump unit was calculated and analyzed through changing the output frequency of frequency converter can regulate the self-sucking centrifugal pump rotating speed. The results show that the self-sucking centrifugal pump unit efficiency can be improved by 1% to 3% and the motor efficiency can be increased by 3% to 9% under the condition of suppressing the frequency converter output harmonic. Moreover, the lower the frequency is, the more obvious the efficiencies of both the motor and the unit are increased in the frequency range of from 20 Hz to 50 Hz. Quantitative research on the effect of frequency converter harmonic on performance of speed regulating pump unit can contribute to the speed range selection.

Urban water consumption prediction is full of complexity due to the different influencing factors and the uncertainty of the statistics database. A comprehensive water consumption prediction model was developed to slove this problem. Multiple approaches were integrated into this model. Specifically, the significant influencing factors of water consumption were selected by principal component analysis: then, the selected influencing factors were further classified by gray cluster analysis and gray relational analysis. Based on the evaluation of the significant influencing factors, a multilayer perceptron network was established by SPSS software, GRNN and BP neural networks were established by Matlab software. IOWA operator was also applied to the water prediction model. Consequently, a MLP-GRNN-BP comprehensive water demand consumption prediction model was developed based on the IOWA operator. The evaluation system,using the sum of squares error(SSE), the mean square error(MSE), mean absolute error(MAE), mean absolute percentage error(MAPE), mean square percentage error(MSPE)and Theil coefficient(μ), was established to evaluate the performance of the predictive models. The proposed models were applied to the city of Chongqing for the municipal water consumption prediction to verify the feasibility of these methods. The results show that the number of significant influencing factors for water consumption in Chongqing city can be reduced from 31 to 12, and the 12 significant influencing factors can be further classified into four clusters, and four kinds of the influencing factors can be analyzed and ranked respectively. MAPE, MSPE and Theil coefficient values are within 5%, when the BP, MLP, GRNN and MLP-GRNN-BP model are used in the case study, indication a good prediction.

Liao Xiangping, Gong Guofang, Zhou Tianyu, Peng Xiongbin
Hydro-viscous drive(HVD)clutch is a type of power transmission device using shear stress of multi-oil films, and it is especially applied to regulate speed for large fans and pumps. However, uniform pressure and velocity of lubricating oil film between friction pairs are difficult to achieve, which can lead to over heating,deformation and uneven wear problem for the frictional disks of HVD clutch. In order to solve the problems, a new type of HVD clutch with a centrifugal oil chamber was proposed. Consequently, the lubricating oil can get into the entrance to friction pairs uniformly under the centrifugal force. Based on the fluid dynamic theory,three-dimensional flow field models of two different oil channel structures were established. Furthermore, the numerical simulation of the flow field of different lubricating oil channel was conducted by the Fluent.The influence of the oil channel structure on pressure and velocity distribution of the entrance to friction pair was researched.The results show that the centrifugal oil chamber design and improve the uniformity of pressure and velocity of the entrance to friction pairs,and greatly improve the working performance and service life for HVD clutch.

1068 Numerical study on hydraulic performance of submerged propellers in oxidation ditch
Wu Siyuan, Zhou Daqing, Zheng Yuan
The submerged propeller is an efficient diving mix device, which is applicable for oxidation ditch treatment in industry, city and village wastewatertreatment plant. The impeller structure and reasonable rotating speed are important factors that determine flow field distribution and energy conversion efficiency. So it is necessary to use modern design methods to develop new kinds of high efficiency submerged propellers, and research the flow field characteristics of submerged propellers. On the basis of the existing form drawing, threedimensional model of submerged propellers and unstructured tetrahedral mesh were generated. Based on Navier-Stokes equations and standard k-ε turbulence model, the flow was simulated by using a simple algorithm. Through changing some design parameters of propellers, the corresponding numerical simulation results reveal that for the same impeller diameter and service area of submerged propellers, the power consumption could be reduced effectively by optimizing blade mounting angle, which can determine the best blade mounting angle and most suitable rotational speed under given conditions. The study can provide theoretical and project guidance for submerged propellers design.

1091 Effect of planting density on root-shoot growth and water utilization efficiency of seed corn
Li Donghao, Jiang Xuelian, Tong Ling
To study the growth and water depletion of seed corn with different planting densities, field experiments were conducted from March to September, 2012 and 2013, at the Wuwei Experimental Station of Crop Water Use, Ministry of Agriculture. Five planting densities that were 67 500, 82 500, 97 500, 112 500 and 127 500 plants hm-2 were conducted in 2012, and a higher planting density of 142,500 plants hm-2 was added in 2013. The root and canopy growth, evapotranspiration(ET)and grain yield of seed maize with different densities were observed. Results indicate that the effect of planting density on crop height is not significant. There is a negative correlation between leaf area per plant and planting density. With the increase of planting density, population biomass, the root dry weight in deep soil(71-100 cm)and the ET increase, while the individual biomass, the root length, the root surface area and the bottom transmittance decrease. The water utilization efficiency and grain yield increase first and then decrease with the increase of planting densities. Considering agricultural production costs and water consumption factors, the recommended local seed corn planting density is 112 500 plants hm-2.

Li Qiangqiang, Zong Quanli, Liu Zhenji, Lan Jun
Through the experiment of discharge time of horizontal type self-cleaning screen filter, the relationships between sediment content at outlet and discharge time were obtained, with six different sediment content of inlet, which are S=0.006,0.013,0.015,0.018,0.027,0.063 kg/m3, and four different flow rates, which are Q=220,200,180, 160 m3/h. The changes of sediment content at outlet with discharge time are analyzed respectively such as different sediment content at same flow rate, and same sediment content at different flow rate. The results show that the sediment content at outlet rise to the maximum first,then decrease until reaching a steady value. Therefore, the minimum of discharge time is 14 s. According to the law of conservation of mass, the calculation me-thod of discharge time is also established. Based on the experimental results, the discharge time of filter is calculated, and the value of calculted discharge time is 15-47 s. Combined experimental results of discharge time, the value of discharge time for horizontal type self-cleaning screen filter is determined, which is 15-30 s. The results are consistent with the existing filter test results and actual operating results, which can be used to predict discharge time for practical engineering horizontal self-cleaning screen filter.
