Abstract:

A new methodology has been developed for pump stations optimization. The methodology uses simultaneously generalized reduced gradient and genetic algorithms. The methodology allows optimization of any combination of constant speed and variable speed pumps. Implementation of this methodology at one pump station yielded reduction of energy usage as much 25% that was equal to more than 50,000 a year.
