Energetic efficiency, groundwater wells, energetic management.


The systems of water distribution from groundwater wells use electrical submersible pumps, in most of cases. All electrical energy is applied to the pumps; however, other components (pipes, valves, etc.) of these systems are also responsible by the higher or lower consumption of electric energy. The supervisors and operators of the systems should thus have knowledge of the global energetic behavior of the process in order to administrate it properly. This work suggests a ‘Global Energetic Efficiency Indicator’ for groundwater wells. Simulation results will be presented and discussed.
