Abstract: In this research, centrifugal pump unit was analysed to study the effects of using inducers on its performance. Hydraulic tests were done to obtain the optimum hydraulic performance before and after using inducer. Two types of inducers were used in this work (axial, helical). For this purpose, a test rig was specially designed with a pump system to investigate the parameters under consideration. Plots (H-Q) curves, (B.P.-Q) curves and (η-Q) curves were used to show the effect of pump performance with and witho…
