Various approaches and techniques are used to design centrifugal compressors. These are engineering one-dimensional and quasi-three-dimensional programs, as well as CFD Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) programs. The final judgment about the effectiveness of the design is given by testing the compressor or its model. A centrifugal compressor for an internal combustion engine turbocharger was designed jointly by the Research Laboratory “Gas Dynamics of Turbomachines” of Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) and RPA (Research and Production Association) “Turbotekhnika”. To check its dimensionless characteristics, the compressor was tested with two geometrically similar impellers with a diameter of 175 (TKR 175E) and 140 mm (TKR 140E). The mathematical model of the Universal Modeling Method calculates the efficiency in the design mode for all tests of both compressors with an error of 0.89%, and the efficiency for the entire characteristic with an error of 1.55%. The characteristics of the TKR 140E compressor were calculated using the ANSYS commercial CFD software. For TKR-140E, a significant discrepancy in the value of the efficiency was obtained, but a good agreement in the area of operation, which was not achieved in previous calculations. According to the calculation, the work coefficient is overestimated by 9%, which corresponds to the results of previous calculations by the authors. View Full-Text
