About the Edition

This thesis investigated the performance and operation of a centrifugal compressor at off-design operating conditions using advanced computational fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques. Comprehensive mesh density and turbulence model studies were conducted for the impeller section. These studies were also attempted for the full compressor stage study at the on-design operating condition. The off design cases considered included compressor operations at 60%, 70%, 80%, 90%, 100% and 105% of the on-design rotational speed. Speed lines were generated for each case and compared to experimental measurements. The predicted results were found to match very closely with the experimental measurements with insignificant deviations at low rotational velocities (60%) rising to a few percent at 100% of the on-design rotational speed. The flow within the centrifugal compressor stage was also examined by considering various performance parameters and making use of three-dimensional flow visualizations. This allowed for a better understanding of the fluid behaviour within the centrifugal compressor. Lastly, the benefits of unsteady (time accurate) simulation on centrifugal compressor performance predictions were investigated. The results obtained showed that unsteady simulations can significantly improve the accuracy of the compressor performance predictions.

The performance of a centrifugal compressor is dependent on many factors, the most important being the composition and the physical and chemical characteristics of the gas it is compressing. Thus, the characteristics of the compressor must be corrected for the characteristics of the gas, to be evaluated at off-design considerations.

The use of turbochargers has increased in response to strengthened automotive exhaust emission and fuel consumption regulations for global environmental protection. Most centrifugal compressors are required to operate over a broad range of flow rates and to provide a high pressure ratio with high efficiency.
