Design Optimisation of a Strongly Interacting Diffuser Pump Stage
Investigate detailed flow structure and loss mechanism in a diffuser pump and redesign impeller and diffuser blade to reduce losses and improve stage efficiency.
Redesigned geometry of the impeller and diffuser.
Based on unsteady flow predictions the redesigned stage showed up to 4 points improvement in efficiency.
