## Series Piping Systems

#### Capabilities

- Rating (Performance Analysis)
- Features
- Required Input for Rating Analysis
- Results from Rating Analysis
- Graphs
- Additional Result Format

- Calculation of flow rate
- Calculation of pressure loss
- System curve generation
- Prediction of cavitations
- Calculation of power/energy
- Calculation of pipe diameter

- Supports up to 1000 pipes
- Supports up to 500 loss types per pipe
- Grouping into pipe types makes the analysis of complicated systems very easy (pipes of the same type have equal diameter and roughness values)

- Velocity at inlet and outlet
- Elevation at inlet and outlet
- Pressure at inlet and outlet
- Fluid density
- Fluid viscosity
- Total flow rate
- Number of pipes, pipe types, and loss types.

- Pipe diameter
- Pipe roughness
- Length of pipe
- Pipe type
- Number of loss components
- Loss component type for each loss component

For detailed analysis only:

- Flow rate
- Pressure loss
- Power/Energy
- Likelihood of occurence of cavitation
- System curve

- Velocity
- Pressure drop

- Plots graph of system curve
- Plots graph of pump curve if user provides data points
- Computes the intersection of system and pump curve
