2024 Abstract - REVIEWING IRRIGATION SYSTEM EFFICIENCIES ON DIESEL POWERED ENGINES FOR IRRIGATED FIELDS IN LOUISIANA: This project includes reviewing results of diesel-powered turbine well efficiency tests to make decisions on driveshaft speeds and resulting water output. This information helps make irrigation decisions based on costs and equipment present on each irrigation system. The discussion will focus primarily on typical irrigation configurations, along with reviewing the effects of multiple groundwater sources within the same pipeline. Tests have shown efficiencies vary, but site-specific information should be incorporated into each pumping plant design.
