• Designs of vane pumps. The principle of operation of centrifugal pumps. Borehole pumps. Large pumps. Other types of pumps.
• Characteristics of pumps. Joint operation of the pump with the pipeline. Working points. Regulation of pump operation. Parallel and sequential operation of pumps. Operation of pumps on the pipeline network.
• Regulation of pump operation. Parallel and sequential operation of pumps. Operation of pumps on the pipeline network.
• Cavitation in vane pumps. The physical essence of the phenomenon of cavitation. Causes of cavitation. Cavitation characteristics of pumps. Critical and permissible cavitation reserves. Measures to combat the effects of cavitation in vane pumps. • Layout of pumping station structures. Classification of pumping stations by purpose, design features, conditions of use, reliability, supply and pressure. The composition of hydraulic pumping stations. The choice of the hydraulic system scheme depending on the purpose, supply conditions and natural-historical factors.
• The main hydro-mechanical and power equipment of pumping stations. Intra-station communications of pumping stations.
• Operating conditions of pumping stations.
• Maintenance of pumping units during operation. Types of repairs. Operating conditions of auxiliary equipment, control and measuring equipment. Preventive inspections and inspections of equipment.
• ESPA/Aquario pumps and pumping equipment for automatic irrigation systems. Selection, installation and proper operation.

The educational process will be structured as follows:
1. Students will be provided with access to an online platform with theoretical training in the program.
2. Practical classes will be held at K.A.Timiryazev RGAU-MSHA for 2 days at the address: Moscow, Bolshaya Akademicheskaya str., 44, building 4.
3. At the end of the training, you will be tested on an online training platform, you will have 3 attempts to pass the test. Upon successful completion, you will receive a certificate of advanced training of the state standard of the RGAU-MSHA named after K.A.Timiryazev.

Tuition fee: 12,000 rubles.
The cost of training for members of the Association "ROSA": 9000 rubles.
