Centrifugal Pump
by Jurgen Eckstein 1990
This type represents a centrifugal pump, which is designed to
run with an electric motor. The model requires two sets of data:
head-flowrate data at reference speed and efficiency-flowrate data at
reference speed. A linear regression is performed to fit a curve through
those data. The normal equations are solved using Gaussian elimination
with partial pivoting. Newtons method is implemented to solve a
system of nonlinear equations. Sample input and output are included in
the source code.
