The pump efficiency can be evaluated using following efficiency formula:
where denotes the efficiency, is the torque, is the angular velocity, is the volume flow rate and is the specific enthalpy which can be evaluated as follows:
Subscript in means averaged quantities at the inlet, whereas subscript out denotes averaged quantities at the outlet. The evaluation of pump efficiency for different patches is also possible.
