Title: Two-phase pump transient behaviour

Concerns regarding the efficiency, stability and safety margins of the rotodynamic pump POSEIDON P300 unit has prompted the investigation of steady state and transient behaviour. Bench tests, carried out on the IFP - Solaize multiphase loop, precede long term field endurance trial (TOTAL - Tunisia). The paper introduces a global analytical model enabling the understanding of the transient pump behaviour. Experimental results are analyzed and gathered practical conclusions enable the design of the control-regulation system.
