Centrifugal Compressor Problem

centrifugal compressor imparts kinetic energy into the airstream by increasing the velocity of the air using a rotating element and then converts this kinetic energy into potential energy in the form of pressure.

                             w2=Radial exit velocity

                            u1=Inlet axial velocity

                            V2=Rotro exit velocity

Tt3=Total Exit temperature

v2-Swirl velocity

b1h-Relative flow Angle at hub

 b1t-Realtive flow angle at tip

v1Rh-Relative Flow velocity at hub

v1Rt-Relative flow velocity at tip

Ut-Rotational Speed

M1– inlet mach number
