headSystem head is the difference between the total discharge head minus the total suction head.


System Head Formula

\(\large{ H =  h_d - h_s    }\) 
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ H }\) = system head \(\large{ft}\)  \(\large{m}\) 
\(\large{ h_d }\) = total discharge head \(\large{ft}\) \(\large{m}\)
\(\large{ h_s }\) = total suction head \(\large{ft}\) \(\large{m}\)
