This paper presents an improved method for predicting the performance of a centrifugal compressor stage. The prediction method is based bn one-dimensional epproacl,with empiricism for the loss models and boundary layer growth within the blade channel. For a given overall geometry of the compressor and inlet flow conditions the method evaluates quite rapidly the compressor performance characteristics with a reasonably acceptable error. The method is validated with a few typical compressor configurations and their experimental performance maps available in literature. the predicted characteristics are in close agreement with the experimental results.
