NPSH and Total Head Calculation
1-Part Live Webinar
This webinar will cover the definition, measurement and calculation of pump total head (H) and net positive suction head available (NPSHA). The instructor will review pressure (absolute, atmospheric, gauge, vapor, etc.) and how head is calculated based on pressure measurement and the liquid’s density. All aspects of calculating total suction head (hs), total suction head absolute (hs,a), and total discharge head (hd) for the purpose of calculating total pump head (H) and NPSHA. Five calculation examples are presented that illustrate the difference in calculations for wet-pit, closed systems, and various locations of the pressure measurement.
Upon completion, learners should be able to:
- Understand pressure
- pump inlet
- pump outlet
- Interpret pressure profile through a pump
- Calculate of suction head, discharge head and total pump head for various installation and measurement examples
- Calculate Net Positive Suction Head Available (NPSHA) for various installation and measurement examples

The acceptance of continuing education as it applies to fulfillment of the state licensing requirements for professional designations is at the pleasure of the individual state licensing boards. It is the responsibility of the individual participants to be knowledgeable about their state requirements.
Licensed Professional Engineers
Continuing professional development is a vital component to the engineering licensure process. Most state licensing boards require continuing professional development as a condition for licensure and renewal of the license to practice engineering. Pre-approval of training providers and courses are not required by most state licensing boards, except for the following:
Florida Board of Professional Engineers
Pump Systems Matter is a board-approved continuing education provider for the Florida Board of Professional Engineers: License # CEA361.
North Carolina Board of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors
Pump Systems Matter is an approved continuing professional competency sponsor for the North Carolina Board of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors: Sponsor # S-0523.
New York State Board for Engineering, Land Surveying, and Geology
Pump Systems Matter is approved as a sponsor of continuing education for professional engineers in New York State: NYS Sponsor # 241.
