Transmission with cardan joints and non­linear gearbox elements generates vibrations caused by spinning motion of transmission. This affects the pressure and productivity of centrifugal pump. The momentum of centrifugal pump in turn affects dynamic characteristics of transmission. In order to find the effect of transmission elements on centrifugal pump we investigate transmission composed of asynchronous electrical engine, gear box, cardan joint and Ziegler Ultra centrifugal pump. We create mathematical models of transmission and centrifugal pumps and investigate how the dynamic effects of transmission influence productivity centrifugal pump. This model can be applied to study the transmission parameters, effect of intake and outflow parameters on productivity of centrifugal pump and presence of cavitation. The paper includes results and conclusions of mathematical model.
