The present paper concerns itself with the effects of total pressure (and thus velocity) distortion on performance characteristics and surge margin of centrifugal compressors. Both radial and circumferential distortions were investigated. The performance tests as well as the velocity measurements within the impeller passages were carried out with a low speed compressor test rig with the inlet honeycomb as the distortion generators and compared with the case of “no distortion” as a datum. The… CONTINUE READING
