600 ft per sec. thus accelerating the air and also causing a rise in pressure to occur. passes into the diffuser section where the passages form divergent nozzles that convert most of the kinetic energy into pressure energy. The air. it is usual to design the compressor so that about half of the pressure rise occurs in the impeller and half in the diffuser. on leaving the impeller. it is necessary to prevent excessive air leakage between the impeller and the casing. Centrifugal action causes it to flow radially outwards along the vanes to the impeller tip. therefore impellers are designed to operate at tip speeds of up to 1.Centrifugal Compressors Principle of Operation The impeller is rotated at high speed by the turbine and air is continuously induced into the centre of the impeller. . this is achieved by keeping their clearances as small as possible. In practice. By operating at such high tip speeds the air velocity from the impeller is increased so that greater energy is available for conversion to pressure. To maintain the efficiency of the compressor. To maximize the airflow and pressure rise through the compressor requires the impeller to be rotated at high speed.

Centrifugal Compressor Parts A centrifugal compressor usually consist of:  Inlet guide vanes  Impeller inducer shrouded / un shrouded splitter  Diffuser  Volute / Scroll .

since Mrel Mrel .Inlet Guide Vanes The IGV give circumferential velocity to the fluid at the inducer inlet (pre-whirl).

Pre-whirl Pre-whirl Types: o Free vortex pre-whirl o Forced vortex pre-whirl o Control vortex pre-whirl .

Consist of:  Inducer  Radial blades Two D surfaces for flow analysis .Impeller An impeller in a centrifugal compressor imparts energy to the fluid.

the opening angle should be maximum 7o. . Their role is to recover the maximum possible kinetic energy leaving the impeller with a minimum loss in total pressure. To avoid flow separation.Diffuser Diffusing passages have a vital role in obtaining good performance from turbomachines.
