Abstract
The centrifugal compressor has been widely used in low power gas turbine, supercharger and industrial turbine compressors. Due to its outstanding advantages of simple process, compact structure and wide working range, it is more advantageous in some aspects such as small flow range than counterparts. However, the design of important components of centrifugal compressor requires lots of design experience and consideration. Because of the deepening research of the industrial centrifugal compressor, some excellent design optimization methods and experiences are obtained from researchers. In order to enable designers to get the preliminary design parameters and to develop a compressor with better performance better and faster, this paper addresses the main design optimization methods and design experiences of the components of the industrial centrifugal compressor. The detailed design considerations and design process for centrifugal compressor can reduce the design cycle time without scarifying performance for the new design. The purpose of this paper is to provide some design considerations and experiences of the centrifugal compressor for researchers. According to the centrifugal compressor design optimization process, purposed considerations in this paper are useful for compressor preliminary parameters selections. The optimizations and design considerations in this paper provide a detailed reference document for future centrifugal compressor developments.
