Horsepower terms used in pumps and pumping systems are:
- the energy required to pump a liquid if a pump were an
ideal machine, i..e., there is no efficiency loss in the pump.
- the energy required to pump water.
- the energy required to pump any liquid, except viscous
liquids that require viscous correction in pump performance (see viscous
- the energy required to pump a viscous liquid where
viscous correction in pump performance is required
(horsepower recovered) - the energy recovered by a
reverse-running pump acting as
hydraulic power recovery turbine
