PDF | The physics of centrifugal compressor perfromance, considering aerodynamics and thermodynamics, especially for real gases. PDF | When the centrifugal compressor operates at low mass flow rates (close to the unstable operating condition called surge), flow. Abstract: This paper presents an optimization design method for centrifugal compressors based on one-dimensional calculations and analyses.

The CFD simulations for the project will follow the guidelines that are followed in the modern day industries.

Slip is nothing but equalization of whirl velocity of air and impeller speed. How far the whirl velocity at the impeller tip falls short of the tip speed depends largely upon the number of vanes on the impeller.

The greater the number of vanes, the smaller the slip.

Work done is positively treated. Actual work input is always greater than theoretical http: The power input factor should be considered to take account of this.

The following flowchart will explain the design procedure of centrifugal compressor. Curve is drawn up to extreme circle. Both root and tip curve can be obtained by this method Figure 1: Input Parameters Values No.

The basic analytical design methodology is produced. Circular arc method is used to get vane profile.

Discharge vs. Inlet

Various dimensional parameters are used to get compressor geometry to build 3D geometry which can be used further for analyzing the system. Related Papers.

Need an account? This article focuses only on those parameters that end users must specify to an OEM when requesting a quote for a new compressor.

At a minimum, the user must specify the flow range that the compressor must handle. Next, the user must specify the composition of the gas to be compressed as well as the range of pressures and temperatures of the gas as it enters the compressor for each operating condition.

The OEM will use a real-gas equation as agreed upon with the user to determine the gas properties for the mixture. Finally, the user must specify the pressure ratio that the compressor must achieve.

Alternatively, the user might specify the discharge pressure that must be achieved and then work with the OEM to determine an acceptable range of inlet pressures. In many situations, the end user will also specify a driver.

This driver needs to be able to deliver a certain amount of horsepower and operate over a specific speed range.

Therefore, the OEM must size the compressor to 50 operate within the drivers speed range while not exceeding the horsepower capability of the driver. Alternatively, the user might ask the OEM to select the driver as well as the compressor and then make the downloading decision based on the overall compression system cost.A detailed inspection of Figure 5.

This manual also describes physical properties of mixed gas. Advanced Experimental Techniques in Turbomachinery.
