This paper describes the aerodynamic design of high pressure ratio centrifugal compressors. The design approach is based on jet and wake model with suitable loss correlations in it. The method incorporates a matching diffuser design for optimum compressor performance. For a given input parameters like mass flow and pressure ratio, the computer programme developed based on the above method generates a 3-D compressor with optimized aerodynamic parameters. As an example the design of a high pr, ratio centrifugal compressor t o develop, Pr. ratio-of 6.0 at 0.96 Kg/Sec is discussed., This design method is one step improvement on the conventional design approach used widely in industries.
