Abstract

The present paper seeks to model and simulate the function of a centrifugal GT4082 compressor and evaluates the effects of losses in the impeller, volute, and diffuser. It is also examined the mass parameter effect on the efficiency drop at different speeds. The total and static pressure drops are also examined in the volute and diffuser. Based on the experiments, the efficiency drops in these parts modeled at different mass parameters and speeds discovered to be maximized in the volute and diffuser at a specific speed. A global minimum was observed in the overall pressure drop and a global maximum in the static pressure drop versus a mass parameter.
