Design of High-Pressure Multistage Axial Compressors

In this webinar we will discuss the typical steps involved in the design process for a high-pressure ratio multistage axial compressor. We will also touch on common challenges, and how these can be addressed with the use of an advanced axial compressor design system. We’ll conclude the session by demonstrating how to design a multistage axial compressor to meet a specific design point performance goal, as well as other off-design performance goals. Read More

Oxy-Fired sCO2 Radial Turbine Design

In this webinar led by Tala El Samad, a PhD candidate at Cranfield University, a thermodynamic analysis of a mid-range cycle (100 MW) with a lower turbine inlet temperature (900oC) is examined. Thermodynamic parameters from the cycle, with a net electric efficiency of 49.1%, will be used for the design of a multi-MW-scale turbine by employing both meanline turbomachinery modelling tools and higher fidelity, 3D CFD techniques.

How to Apply API Standards to Turbomachinery Rotor Dynamics for Lateral Analysis

In this webinar, we will discuss the specific application of API standards to lateral analyses in rotor dynamics for turbomachines. These standards are published as guidelines and classified by type of machine to help engineers determine which simulations to run, how to run them, what results to pay attention to and what are considered safe vs. unsafe working conditions for the rotor assembly. Understanding these recommendations is necessary as they can be the difference between reliable equipment and very costly and potentially fatal failures.

Turbocharger Design, Selection, and System Level Optimization Utilizing GT-SUITE and AxSTREAM®

During the first half of this webinar, we will consider how to build reliable turbomachinery models from limited known data. We will then demonstrate how these models can be modified and analyzed to create the turbocharger performance maps and how multiple maps/machines can be easily compared for the best overall engine performance. After this, we will move on to the second half of the webinar, showing the design process from preliminary design to blade profiling, structural checks, etc. and creation of performance maps to be exported to GT-SUITE for complete turbocharged engine system optimization.
