Main purpose of investigation has been put on the hydraulic energy losses caused in the rotating flow passage of centrifugal pump. Result of discussion shows that fundamental poor efficiency is brought by the fluid particles poor rotational motion at the trailing edge of impeller outlet, including the rotational motion caused in the flow passage between impeller blades rather than the hydraulic energy losses caused in the rotating flow passage. Therefore, our main purpose of investigation has to be put on the way rather to the fluid particles rotational motion caused at the trailing edge of impeller outlet and that caused between impeller blades.
