This is the first of several papers that will be presented about the topic of the rotodynamics pumps operating in parallel. A brief summary of the operation characteristics and hydraulic behavior of the pumps coupled in parallel is presented firstly. The method of the virtual pumps, a simple and practical procedure is presented for the solution of problems of pumps connected in parallel, when the installation conditions and/or characteristic of the coupled pumps, are in general different for each one.
