Centrifugal pumps are much simpler to control than either reciprocating or rotary pumps. They owe this ease of control to the flexibility of their characteristics, which enables them to adapt well to the varying requirements of the systems in which they can be applied. To understand the fundamentals of centrifugal pump control, however, it is necessary to have a clear conception of the relationship between the pump performance characteristics, the characteristics of the system in which the pump operates, and the operating conditions of head and capacity.
