The energy transformations involved in the operation of the pumping installations are carried out by pumping aggregates consisting of an electric motor and a pump. In order to provide a full adaptation to the users’ variable demands, variable speed motor driven pumps are used on networks (such motors being equipped with frequency converters). The paper presents a method for determining the global efficiency of a frequency converter-asynchronous motor-pump group. The method has been implemented at the Chiriţa Pumping Station, main facility within the Iasi City water supply system.

This paper includes an analysis of the biological treatment process existing within the water supply and sewerage of Iași City. The main objective of biological treatment is the removal of solid organic substances from wastewater, the stabilization of sludge, the reduction of nutrients loads etc. The Iași City Wastewater Treatment Plant was developed in several stages since year 1968. Nowadays, the facility operates at a design flow rate of 4 m3/s during dry weather and 8 m3/s during heavy rainfalls. This study is focused on the following aspects: wastewater treatment plant’s diagram, the wastewater parameters inside the treatment plant, the biological treatment process analysis and a few conclusions.
