In the flow through the pipes, we have unstable movements when, due to the closing or opening of the valve or other hydraulic equipment, the speed of movement of the liquid changes. The change in velocity causes inertial forces to arise in the liquid which cause pressure changes in the flow. The phenomenon characterized by these pressure changes is called hydraulic water hammer.
The hydraulic shock can be called the increase or decrease of the flow pressure in the pipe caused by the change in time (in any section) of the flow velocity.
The objective of this paper is to provide information and resources to assist water company management and their staff in identifying and implementing opportunities to reduce energy use. Case study is Pumping Station in Milloshevo managed by Regional Water Company “PRISHTINA”.
