Hi Everyone,

I am trying to create the Net Head VS Volumetric Flow Rate performance curve for my Fluent Simulation.

Is is suitable to use the static pressure surface integral values of the inlet and outlet of a simple centrifugal pump to calculate the Energy Grade Lines for use in the net head for a liquid pump equation, where
Net Head = [EGL]outlet - [EGL]inlet

Thanks for your help, its really appreciated!
