Extension of a Centrifugal Compressor Performance Prediction Technique
Published November 03, 1998 by Institution of Mechanical Engineers in United Kingdom
A performance prediction technique is described for centrifugal compressors incorporating a vaneless diffuser. Predicted and experimental compressor work has been compared, and this indicates some adjustment to the Wiesner correlation is desirable. Comparisons of overall compressor performance are presented, and these indicate that the method shows promise. Further work including additional instrumentation to allow component performance to be extracted is discussed.
