Abstract. Pump speed, input power, pressure and discharge data are analyzed for evaluating functioning conditions of Casale pumping station in Mantova, Italy, managed by TeaAcque. A model based on the affinity laws is used to simulate the behavior of the installed variable speed pumps. Quadratic and cubic polynomial curves are used to fit the pump data given by the affinity laws. Such curves allow predicting the efficiency when the functioning conditions change. The relationship between the rotation speed and the efficiency is also derived.
