Control by throttling

Control by throttling is used to influence the flow rate in a pump system by varying system resistance. It is also the simplest way to shift the operating point of a centrifugal pump because it uses existing valves fitted inside, upstream, or downstream of the system. Unwanted noise and vibrations can occur, however, and control by throttling is the least energy-efficient control method (control by generating losses).
