Fluid transportation systems are among the high energy consumers in different industries such as water distribution systems. It is, therefore, important to study their optimized performance as regards their energy consumption. The fluid behavior in these systems under different operational conditions is actually dynamic, or time-dependent; the study of these systems by a dynamic model, hence, allows system performance to be evaluated more accurately. In this paper, a dynamic model is presented for a fluid transportation system consisting of a pumping station, a pipeline, and a reservoir tank. Sample calculations of energy consumption for a pumping station are presented. The results obtained from this study can be used for formulating recommendations on energy consumption estimation of pumping stations based on their operational conditions and control method used.
