This paper presents complete pump characteristics of specific speeds 1800, 7600, and 13,500 (gpm units) in the ν – hP (flow ratio-head ratio) co-ordinate system. The method of developing these complete pump characteristics from test data is described. The three complete pump characteristics are compared, and the effects of specific speed on hydraulic transients caused by power failure or pump shutoff is presented.
