FAQ: How do I put a pump curve in Seeq? As of R21.0.44.00 this can be done the with the scatter-plot tool.  This method does require version R21.0.44.00 or newer to work.  See the steps below for details.  

  1. Determine the X&Y components of the curve. This can be done with a tool such as https://apps.automeris.io/wpd/
  2. Enter or paste the components in columns A and B in the CurveFitter excel sheet. See screenshot below for details.  The CurveFitter file can be found here.  CurveFitter.zip

  3. Once the new Flow and Head data has been pasted into excel copy the contents in from D2 to E9 and paste them into the Seeq formula tool. See screenshots below for copy paste details

    Paste:

  4. Paste the following syntax in the same formula under the coefficients. Be sure that the flow signal has the variable name “$flow”.

    $f=$flow.remove($flow.isNotBetween($lower,$upper)).setunits('')

    $coeff4*$f^4+$coeff3*$f^3+$coeff2*$f^2+$coeff1*$f+$const

  5. Add the line to the Scatterplot by selecting the f(x) in the Scatterplot tool bar and pick the correct item from the select item dropdown.

  6. If adding more than one curve, then click on the item properties “i” of the first curve and click on duplicate. Once in the formula tool copy the new coefficients from excel replacing the old one and hit execute. Follow step 5 to add the curve to the plot.

If all of your points are in one location or you are only plotting one point you will likely need to zoom out to see the whole curve.   This can be done by putting your mouse over of the x and y axis and using the scroll wheel to zoom out.

Alex,

I am not able to share the password of the excel file. The first two columns should be unlocked so you can add your curve data there.  If you want to change the fit, you can copy the formula to another workbook or write your own. You don’t need to use the excel workbook provided if you don’t want to. It is just setup to allow you to copy and paste the cells into the formula tool and not have to worry about anything. You can follow the same formatting I did and get the same results. 

Note: If you do change the order of the fit you will need to change the formula syntax in Seeq to match the new order.

Regards,
Teddy
