Start with a few of your own defined parameters (pressure ratio, mass flow rotational speed, gas properties, geometric constraints) and the software will calculate a 3-D blade geometry and calculates aerodynamic performance parameters. Additionally, tt will also provide you with a meridional view of the impeller.
Centrifugal compressors and pumps are universally used in a range of industrial applications like refrigeration and air conditioning, turbo-machinery, power generation, and turbochargers. Yet, while a compressor can be designed with a specific operating condition in mind, it is often imperative to run the compressor over a wide flow range. As a result, off-design performance and efficiency are often an essential consideration.
The mass flow rate, and subsequently the pressure change across the compressor, can be maintained by adjusting the rotational velocity of the impellers. Yet, this may not be efficient, especially if frequent adjustments are needed. An alternative approach is the application of Inlet Guide Vanes (IGVs). However, a positive vane angle generates preswirl in the direction of impeller rotation. Therefore, diminishing compressor work at a provided revolutions-per-minute (RPM). This is why accurate Blade Modeling Software is so essential for engineers.
