Pump Efficiency Calculator
Input Electrical Power (kW)   Flow (l/s)
Inverter Efficiency (%)   Head (m)
Motor Efficiency (%)   Pump Input Power (kW)
      Fluid Power (kW)
Pump Efficiency (%)      
'Wire to Water' Efficiency (%)        
       
How to Use the Calculator:
Enter your measured Input Electrical Power, Inverter Eff, Motor Eff, Flow and Head to calculate your Pump Efficiency and Overall 'Wire to Water' Efficiency.
 
Notes:
1. Inverter Efficiency is difficult to measure. In most cases it is around the range 95%-98%.
2. Motor Efficiency is also difficult to determine in isolation. Use estimates around 90% for more recent higher efficiency motors.
