This webinar presents the redesign of an electrically driven mixed flow transonic compressor by using a 3D inverse design methodology. The compressor will be used for an active high-lift system application that aims to delay the onset of stall and thus contributing to the reduction of both the aircraft noise footprint and the impact of aviation emission on local air quality.

The aim for this project was to design a refrigeration compressor stage using R134a to improve performance of the entire stage (impeller, vaneless diffuser and volute) and to meet various flow rates and pressure ratio requirements by trimming the impeller.
The design of transonic multistage axial turbines and compressors of the type used in aero-engines and industrial gas turbines poses difficult and challenging problems to turbomachinery designers. In aero-engines, there is an increasing trend to reduce engine weight, which is only possible by increasing stage loading coefficient and reducing the axial spacing between the stages.
The paper highlights design guidelines for application of inverse design method to Francis turbine runners. The design guidelines have a general validity and can be used for similar design applications since they are based on flow field analyses and on hydrodynamic design parameters.
In this paper on designing turbomachinery components for supercritical CO2 using 3D Inverse Design you can learn about the development of supercritical CO2 and the challenges it presents.
