When modeling an HVAC system using series fan-powered terminal units (FPTUs) with permanent split capacitor motors in EnergyPlus, the user must enter values for fan total pressure rise and fan/motor efficiency.
A search of fan literature would show that the proper (technical) input for pressure rise should be the fan total pressure rise.

With the exit air velocity known, the velocity pressure was calculated and added to the measured static pressure differential across the fan to obtain a fan total pressure.
