Gasturbine part manufacturers are often not involved in the design process. This means opportunities to optimize the design including manufacturing issues are missed. This paper presents a performance analysis of a microturbine centrifugal compressor from a manufacturer's perspective. A one-dimensional (1D) performance modeling tool has been devised to predict the design and off-design performance by sequentially calculating the processes in the impeller, vaneless diffuser and scroll. Part drawings have been used to obtain the geometric information. Comprehensive two-zone modeling has been applied along with a set of meanline empirical loss models integrated in the secondary zone to estimate the entropy gain. This novel methodology has allowed the calculation of individual impeller loss mechanisms instead of predicting them as bulk. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has also been used to quantify the secondary flow properties and improve the 1D model. The results have been validated through a comparison with the microturbine test data. A sensitivity analysis has been performed to investigate the influence of geometric changes upon compressor performance. The study is important to develop design for manufacturing capability and optimize the designs for cost-effective manufacturing.
