WORK INPUT OF CENTRIFUGAL COMPRESSOR

Neglecting the changes in potential energy and process being


adiabatic,the actual workdone per kg of air can be calculated from
steady flow 6energy equation as follows:

c
2 2

q wa h2 h1
c2 1
g z 2 z1
2

But q=0, z z
2 1 ,work is negative,

Therefore, w h2 h1
c 2 c1

Adiabatic Workdone can be given as:

w h h c T T

ISENTROPIC EFFICIENCY OF
CENTRIFUGAL COMPRESSOR

Isentropic efficiency , is defined as the ratio of isentropic or ideal work
