Abstract

Ram pumps employ renewable energy in the form of water head to pump water, but they have performance issues that require difficult on-site testing and tuning, hence limiting their application. The current research developed a low-cost lab-scale testing system for small ram pumps’ performance evaluation, tuning and leak testing. The developed system is made from available, low-cost, sensors and components. It conserves test water by setting the supply head through continuous circulation of water. The system was tested on a low-cost small sized ram pump, specially built using plumbing components. Test results demonstrated the capacity of the developed testing system.
