Design High Performance Centrifugal Compressor Vaned Diffusers

The design of the vaned diffuser of a centrifugal compressor is still based on a considerable amount of empiricism in its design methodology. Parameters such as area ratio and blockage, which are more relevant to conical diffusers, are used in conventional design practice.

Hydrodynamic Design of Pump Diffuser Using Inverse Design Method and CFD

A new approach to optimizing a hydrodynamic design of pump diffuser is presented, based on a three-dimensional inverse design method and a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technique. The blade shape of the diffuser was designed for a specified distribution of circulation and a given meridional geometry at a low specific speed of 0.109 (non-dimensional) or 280 (m3 /min, m, rpm).

Performance Optimization of a Centrifugal Fan

You hear about it everywhere: design optimization. The world requires more efficient and reduced emissions products, as with the government regulations directives mandating their adherence to energy standards such as EU’s Ecodesign directive. The competitive pressure across the industry means that it is no longer sufficient to design and manufacture fans that simply work. Energy efficiency, over an extended operating range, has become a vital objective of design effort along with performance to suit the machine’s intended application.

Webinar: Design of High Efficiency Compressors with Low GWP Refrigerants

Design of High-Efficiency Compressors with Low GWP Refrigerants

Refrigerants are used in many applications such as stationary and mobile air conditioning and refrigeration systems. A commonly used refrigerant such as R134a has a low Ozone Depleting Potential (ODP) but relatively high Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 1400. In recent years there has been substantial growth in refrigerant used for cooling applications.

Optimization of a pump-turbine runner

Pumped hydro energy storage (PHES) is currently the only proven large-scale (>100 MW) energy storage technology. The benefits of PHES on electrical system operations are well documented in textbooks and journals. The flexible generation of PHES can provide upregulation and downregulation in power

Complex geometrical shape design with TURBOdesign Shaper

Traditionally, the design and optimization of complex shapes have been computationally expensive and improvements gained via trial and error, which is also expensive and less efficient. TURBOdesign Shaper is a software product of Advanced Design Technology that targets to ease the design of complex geometrical shapes. It is a solution for sensitivity analysis and optimization with computational cost being independent of the complexity.
