ABSTRACT. An increased energetic efficiency will make it possible to decrease the factory operating costs and hence to increase productivity. The centrifugal pumps are largely used because of their relatively simple operation and of their purchase price. One analyses thorough requirements imposed by the pumping plants is decisive.

It is important to keep in mind the fact that the pumps consume approximately 20% of energy in the world. They constitute the possibility for the most significant efficiency improvement. They can reach their maximum effectiveness only with one pressure and a given flow. The approach suggested makes it possible to adapt with accuracy and effectiveness of system output of the industrial process requirements. The variable speed drive is one of best and effective techniques studied to reach this objective.

The appearance of this technique comes only after the evolution obtained in the field of power electronics systems precisely static inverters as well as the efforts made by the researchers in the field of electric drive systems. This work suggested is the result of an in-depth study on the effectiveness of this new technique applied for the centrifugal pumps.
