AMCA150 Fan Power Law (AMCA150)


The fan power law defines the fundamental engineering relationship between four key indicators of fan performance: fan flow rate; fan static (or total) pressure, fan power, and fan static (or total) efficiency.

In this self-guided course, you will work with the elements of the fan power law equation and explore how they interact. You will also practice calculating the compressibility factor and the fan electrical and mechanical power.
