## Pump Discharge Pressure Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Pump Discharge Pressure.

**Ppump = Ps + Pd**

- Where Ppump is the Pump Discharge Pressure (Pa)
- Ps is the suction pressure (Pa)
- Pd is the design pressure (Pa)

## How to Calculate Pump Discharge Pressure?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Pump Discharge Pressure.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the suction pressure (Pa). In this example, the suction pressure (Pa) is given as 54.
- Next, determine the design pressure (Pa). For this problem, the design pressure (Pa) is given as 15.
- Finally, calculate the Pump Discharge Pressure using the equation above:

Ppump = Ps + Pd

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation:

Ppump = 54 + 15 = 69 (Pa)

**Example Problem #2: **

Using the same process as above, first define the variables required by the formula. In this case, these values are:

suction pressure (Pa) = 95

design pressure (Pa) = 189

Entering these values yields:

Ppump = 95 + 189 = 284 (Pa)
