The flow turning area from the axial to the radial direction in front of the blade leading edge is required to be adequately designed to avoid the shroud flow separation. Three basic types of impellers: open, semi-open, closed Impeller design is the most significant factor for determining performance of a centrifugal pump. By adjusting the impeller width, the impeller total pressure can be controlled without sacrificing the performance. (iv)Blade trailing-edge shape control (or blade steering) effectively modifies the impeller exit flow and reduces power (from 0.945 to 0.896 PWRref or a 31.3 kW reduction) while maintaining efficiency. The new 3D blade generated high head of 1.548 ref versus 1.471 ref with a higher efficiency of 95.08% versus 93.66% at the expense of a higher shaft power of 0.968 PWRref versus 0.936 PWRref. (9) Since the impeller width plays an essential role in the impeller performance, a wider width impeller was generated for comparison and is labelled as the NEW-w impeller. As a consequence, the pressure rise was determined from the difference between the inlet and exit pressures and is a function of the impeller design. A variety of different techniques were utilized in the redesign process: for example, the hub was modified by streamline tracing; the bellmouth/shroud was modified by altering the local curvature near the blade whereas a formal genetic algorithm- (GA-) based optimization procedure was used to redesign the blade profile. It can also be observed that the efficiency of the impeller increases as the rotation speed increases. (i)The impeller-only calculations for the baseline B#1 impeller and the reference B#2 impeller indicate that the total efficiencies of both existing impellers are high (above 92%). Following the Re suggestion of Phelan et al. The selected 2D blade shape, circled in the solid black circle in Figure 12, has a near peak fitness value plotted in Figure 13 and the highest efficiency in Figure 12 among all GA designs. Meanwhile, the prediction accuracies of three surrogate models, namely, Response surface model (RSM), Kriging model, and Radial basis neural network (RBNN), were compared. The pressure fluctuation and the corresponding frequency spectrum at different monitor points were obtained from the simulation. Balancing holes in single-suction centrifugal pumps are generally applied to attenuate the axial thrust caused by a pressure difference between the front side of a shroud and the rear side of a hub of an impeller. and all of the simulation results were converged within the range. The impeller design package includes a geometry modelli procedure, aerodynamic analysis, stress analysis, and the direct generation of data for … The converged volute solution for the baseline B#1 impeller was first obtained by adjusting the pressures at the two exits to reach the design lift flowrate. The grouping of control points was implemented in the spanwise direction to ensure that the integrity of the 2D shape was maintained. The two other profiles were investigated to reduce the sharp curvature at the blade intersection [13]. The optimization calculation was to minimize this objective function. fluid dynamics (CFD) has been used. Centrifugal pump usage has increased over the past year due to its importance and efficiency. Fan aerodynamic performance at the design point requires air at a temperature of 26.7°C, an impeller shaft speed of 1692 rpm, and a shaft power of 1276.6 kW (=2 PWRref) to produce a lift static pressure of 7517 Pa (= ref) at a nominal lift-side air flow rate of 57.43 m3/s. Numerical simulations are carried out to study the pump performance. points were set at the impeller-volute coupling interface, inlet and outlet faces of the pump. The peak of the “Non-GA” points in Figure 13 was not selected due to the aggressiveness of the design which will be described in the next section. The comparisons between the CFD predictions and measurements confirm that the existing fan was overpowered at design, which enabled a new impeller design with a lower power requirement. Energy consumption by pump is reduced by employing appropriate blade height. Table 2 shows the performance data obtained from the impeller/volute coupling calculations for all fans. The critical flow separation affecting performance happens at the shroud near the blade leading edge. The grids were then passed to CRUNCH CFD and the performance of the altered designs was evaluated. A 2D impeller basically has a constant blade angle from disk to shroud along the leading edge of the blade. A properly designed impeller optimizes flow while minimizing turbulence and maximizing efficiency. The amplitudes of the pressure fluctuation at the inlet and outlet were lower than that of the impeller-volute coupling interface, and the high-frequency components at the inlet and outlet were fewer than that of the impeller-volute coupling interface. For the impeller-flow calculation, all boundary conditions used for the CFD design calculations were maintained except for eliminating the periodic boundary condition and controlling the exit back pressure through the interface information exchange. This suggests that conventional design methods such as a streamline curvature or an inviscid calculation method would be inadequate in addressing any aerodynamic improvements to the existing impellers. The process is accomplished by convergence of key quantities such as the total pressures and mass flow rates at the impeller inlet, interface, and volute outlets. The convergence of the solution is determined by the variation of the calculated impeller torque and the mass-averaged total and static pressure variations at the inlet and outlet planes. (RANS) equations with standard SST (Shear Stress Transport) turbulence models. The NEW impeller has the smallest performance variation in almost all the parameters predicted, particularly for the volute losses as pointed out previously. The width for the NEW impeller was chosen to be 0.1213 D. In order to evaluate the fan performance, it is necessary to include the volute with each impeller. Additionally, AIAA-95-0221, 1995. Figure 4 shows the assembly of the bellmouth and impeller for one half of the fan. Further the impeller was analyzed for both forward and backward curved vane. (ii) The shroud gap between the bellmouth and the shroud carries less than 1% of the inflow back from the volute to the impeller for the current fans. The impeller is a double-width, double-inlet (DWDI) centrifugal type with two nonstaggered blade rows. The new edition includes examples using modern computer tools such as Matlab, Ansys, Nastran, and Abaqus. The B#2 and NEW impellers suffer about 0.5% reduction in fan efficiency due to the gap-affected impeller exit flow [17] into the volute which induces impeller blade trailing-edge flow recirculation, as shown in Figure 19. The conclusions drawn from the comparisons are as follows. The CFD predictions suggest that a Reynolds number effect exists between the model- and full-scale fans. Numerical Study on the Effect of Impeller Geometry on Pump Performance, Application of different surrogate models on the optimization of centrifugal pump. For example, Kaupert and Staubli [2] recorded strong blade loading fluctuations as the blade passed the volute tongues on a double spiral volute, particularly at below design flow rates. A centrifugal pump is common in process plants, usually in large numbers. Empirical equations were established for preliminary design of impellers and diffusers, including Stodola [ 1 ], Cordier [ 2 ], Herbert [ 3 ], Rodgers [ 4 ], and Wiesner [ 5 ]. Proceedings of the IASTED International Conference on Modelling, Simulation and Optimatization. Both fans with the existing impellers and the fan system with the redesigned impeller were tested to verify improvement in performance. Fig. This reduction in power agrees with the 8.7% reduction obtained from the CFD predictions. The goal was to reduce power consumption while maintaining a specified output pressure at the lift-side volute exit. Two cases were considered for this study: impeller, and combined impeller and diffuser. Calculations were made for both B#1 and B#2 impellers with an approximately 250,000 cell grid. While preventive maintenance is an important procedure for reducing pump problems it does not guarantee foolproof operations. Furthermore the deformation was propagated to the grid points of the CFD grid associated with the newly deformed blade shape within SCULPTOR. 2, were designed by random sample points according to the LHS method. Model-fan measured data was used to validate CFD predictions and impeller design goals. (2013). Results showed that the calculated findings agree with the experimental performance results of the original pump. 2011, Article ID 537824, 16 pages, 2011. https://doi.org/10.1155/2011/537824, 1Carderock Division, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Code 5700, West Bethesda, MD 20817, USA, 2Combustion Research and Flow Technology, Inc. (CRAFT Tech), Pipersville, PA 18947, USA, 3Ships Systems Engineering Station, Carderock Division, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Code 9860, Philadelphia, PA 19112, USA. In summary, the NEW impeller improves fan efficiency by 1.2 percentage points and reduces power by 5.8%. This Reynolds number effect is larger for the existing impellers as compared to the new impeller. DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF CENTRIFUGAL PUMPS Basic Pump Components A typical Centrifugal Pump is shown in Figure 1. A refined CFD assessment of the impeller/volute coupling and the gap between the stationary duct and the rotating shroud revealed a reduction in efficiency due to the volute and the gap. 78-WA/PTC-1, 1978. By integrating all of the above findings, which include the effects from the hub and bellmouth/shroud design, the 2D blade profile optimization, the steering of blade shape, the 3D swept blade design, and the impeller width control, an assembled impeller is shown in Figure 17 with eleven 3D blades. This is an open access article distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Calculations were also performed to investigate the effect of using the wall-function procedure. The grid + was controlled between 10 and 50 for the wall-function modelling and below 1 for the near-wall modelling. The measured power reduction for the new impeller is 8.8% lower than the baseline. As a result, the performance of the impeller increases as the efficiency increases. From here on out, when this 3D version of the steer blade is integrated with the impeller, it is referred to as the NEW design impeller. Since flow separation occurs in each impeller while operating at high efficiency, the redesign calculations must accurately account for all aerodynamic losses in order to predict any performance difference within a few percentage points. Professional engineers will benefit from the introduction to the many useful applications of finite element analysis, and will gain a better understanding of its limitations and special uses. Figure 16 shows the effects of the total pressure generated and the efficiency when changing the impeller width for the 11-bladed B#2 (B#2-11) impeller and the NEW impeller. A GA-based procedure was used for optimization of the impeller blade. The increased loading of the blade near midchord resulted in flow acceleration especially near the shroud where the original blades were prone to a large area of flow separation. Impeller vane profile was generated by circular arc method and point by point method and CFD analysis was performed for the impeller vane profile. The purpose of this paper is to identify /observe and determine the pattern of pressure distribution by using CFD simulation, Blade thickness and blade height are the most influencing parameters on the performance of pump. It also reduces fan efficiency by 0.5%. The magnetic drive pump, the subject of this study, has a leak-free airtight structure and an integrated structure of the impeller and inner magnet. This paper revolves around the idea of design and analysis of centrifugal pump for performance enhancement within the pump specifications. J. J. Phelan, S. H. Russel, and W. C. Zeluff, “A study of the influence of reynolds number on the performance of centrifugal fans,” ASME Paper No. Flow separations occur in two major areas. It computes the entire (all blades included) impeller steady flow field in the rotational frame and converts the flow field information to a stationary frame at an interface near the impeller exit to the downstream volute. The MS CFD predictions agree well with the model test data for both B#1 and NEW impellers, particularly the rise and fall for the NEW impeller. Blade trailing-edge shape control (or blade steering) effectively modifies the impeller exit flow and reduces power (from 0.945 to 0.896 PWR. The study revealed that although the existing impellers were high performing to start with, there was some margin for improvement. The impeller efficiencies of the two steer blades and the 2D design blade are almost identical. Since the volute outer casing configuration is a structural constraint, it stays the same for all fans, the volute flow field and its feedback to the impeller are modified for changes in the impeller exit conditions and the volute-side’s bellmouth and shroud shapes. 15. This rise in pressure does not occur for the other two impellers. 12. The predicted ShaftPWR for each impeller is lower than the targeted ShaftPWR (or PWRref). The large curvature of the shroud as it approaches the blade may be partially responsible for the flow separation seen at the shroud due to the difficulty of the boundary layer to remain attached as the flow negotiates the turn near the shroud. of a centrifugal radial flow pump designed to deliver 0.0074 m3/s of water with a head of 30 m at a speed of 2870 rpm using For the volute-flow calculation, the mass-averaged discharge pressures from the two exits are prescribed to keep (a) the required flow to the lift side, (b) the extended surface from the impeller backplate modelled as a symmetry plane, (c) the shroud as the rotating wall, and (d) all other casing surfaces as no-slip walls. 1. Graph of Pressure vs Impeller Rotation Speed, Impeller Power and Efficiency Calculation, Table 4 below shows the power at the inlet and outlet of the impellers, and the, with 24.67m of static head. Optimal Design of a Centrifugal Compressor Impeller Using Evolutionary Algorithms Soo-Yong Cho,1 Kook-Young Ahn,2 Young-Duk Lee,2 and Young-Cheol Kim2 1 Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Velocity and pressure distribution were analyzed for the modified impellers. A detailed study was also carried out of the coupled impeller-volute system. For this case, the targeted ShaftPWR and output power were set at 581 and 552 kWs, respectively. [6], and Karanth and Sharma [7] used both CFD and particle-image-velocity (PIV) measurement to study centrifugal fan impeller interactions with a vaned diffuser and a single discharge volute, and found that their steady numerical simulations were able to predict the flow characteristics, particularly the flow separation, which existed between the impeller and the diffuser. This time-varying flow field could be approximated by a time-averaged or steady flow field with a fixed geometric relationship between the impeller and the volute. Therefore, this paper proposes that the reliability of the structure be explicitly satisfied at the component level as well as at the system level during design. AIAA-91-1548, 1991. The widths for the two existing impellers shown in Figure 2 are 0.1207 D and 0.1350 D, respectively. The shaft power values for the B#1 impeller and the design power threshold of 4.7% and goal of 10% reduction are also marked in each plot. 13. Here, we outline some basics about the pump and follow that up with the simple steps used in the design process. The flow field formulation was implemented within a 3D unstructured code CRUNCH. However, when the flow rate is very high, single-suction will not be enough. They are lift-side total and static efficiencies, which were calculated as follows:lift=Δlift⋅liftShaftPWR,(10)lift=Δlift⋅liftShaftPWR.(11). Design considerations for high pressure ratio centrifugal compressor have been systematically studied by many researchers for decades. Although the calculated static pressures are all higher than the required lift-side discharge pressure (/ref>1), the air static pressures at the lift side for both NEW and B#2 impellers are lower than that of the B#1 impeller. There existed a sudden pressure drop in all three fans at the point the fans went into stall conditions. The calculations including the gap further complicate the role of volute influences to the fan’s overall performance. Most of the other parts are enclosed within it. Fig. Computational Fluid Dynamics is most commonly used tool for simulation and analysis. It mainly consists of (i) inlet casing with the converging nozzle (ii) the impeller (iii) the diffuser and (iv Centrifugal pumps are a most commonly used in different fields like industries, agriculture and domestic applications. Comparisons shown in Figure 21 include the original design required pressure rise, model test data, and CFD predictions for the full-scale (FS) and model-scale (MS) fans. Impeller using ANSYS FLUENT", International Journal of Science, The 2D blade cross-section design described in the previous section was performed in a relatively conservative manner due to an “unknown” coupling effect from the downstream volute. Optimized Design Results of Centrifugal Compressor Impeller The centrifugal compressor impeller is a backswept open impeller type with a splitter blade, and the design pressure ratio is 1.53. Finally, the internal flow fields were analyzed to understand the mechanism of efficiency improvement. finite element analysis, structural analysis, computational, calculation of the simulations faster, more accurate and more efficient [12. The design requirements called for improving the efficiency of lift fan while meeting the set design criteria for the output fluid power delivered by the impeller. Table 1and Figure 3show the main specifications and forms of the two optimized design impellers (OPT1 and OPT2), and a baseeline impeller, respectively. 4, no. The fluid flow passage can be optimised by the blade thickness. It also reduces fan efficiency by 0.5%. The most centrifugal pump has a single suction design. Surrogate model based shape optimization methodology to enhance performance of a centrifugal pump has been implemented in this work. A heavy-duty air cushion vehicle usually employs centrifugal lift fans to pressurize the air cushion and power the steering thruster. 7. Another 5 impellers with the same parameters were also designed by using single arc, double arcs, triple arcs, logarithmic spiral, and linear-variable angle spiral … Due to the geometrical symmetry, the CFD calculations only cover one single blade passage for the gridding system used, as shown in Figure 5. the Design of Radial Flow Pump Impeller through CFD Analysis. The GA uses the traditional selection, crossover, and mutation operators, whose implementation details are provided in [14]. New to this edition: examples and applications in Matlab, Ansys, and Abaqus; structured problem solving approach in all worked examples; new discussions throughout, including the direct method of deriving finite element equations, use of strong and weak form formulations, complete treatment of dynamic analysis, and detailed analysis of heat transfer problems; more examples and exercises; and, all figures revised and redrawn for clarity. The matching volute design plays an important role in determining fan efficiency, which is improved by 1.2% for the new fan over the baseline fan. The results achieved reveal that the selected key design parameters have an impact on the centrifugal pump performance describing by the pump head, the brake horsepower and the overall efficiency. It is usually made of cast iron, steel, […] ANSYS CFX (ver.14.0). The optimization improves the impeller efficiency from 92.6% to 93.7%. The blade was designed as a 2D blade to reduce the manufacturing cost. (iii)The 2D blade profile optimization, based on a numerical coupling between a CFD calculation and a genetic algorithm optimization scheme, is able to achieve a composite objective with a projected shaft power and a power output. for determining performance of a centrifugal … Probabilistic design is done by explicitly accounting for the uncertainties in the different variables and their influence on structural performance. The main basic parts are described below. In the following sections, we provide details of the strategy and methodology for redesigning the impeller using the impeller-only CFD calculations. Isometric View of Fixed Boundary Condition. The impeller head is nearly linear in relationship to the shaft power. The latter calculations for the MS fans were performed using the MS Re number, which is about 12% of the FS Re number. All rights reserved. When the losses in the volute were included, the total fan efficiency further reduced to between 76.9% and 78.3% for all fans except the B#2 impeller which decreased to 74%. (iii) The test data of the lift-side pressure rise for the existing and new impellers agrees well with the CFD predictions based on the model Reynolds number. L. Bachus and A. Custodio, "Know and understand centrifugal pumps", For the incompressible flow calculation, a uniform inflow condition was imposed at the bellmouth inlet to maintain the required flow rate and a mass-averaged back pressure was applied at the impeller exit. design a radial type vane profile based on the fundamental understanding of published procedures. International Journal of Rotating Machinery, Distance parameter used in defining the optimization objective function shown in (, Fan tip speed (141.77 m/[email protected] condition), K. A.

This allows the 14-bladed baseline B#1 impeller to be redesigned as the 11-bladed NEW impeller. This paper presents the use of state-of-the-art reliability techniques to develop efficient structural design guidelines for civil engineering structures in a manner that includes overall structural system effects. Centrifugal Pump Impeller An impeller is a wheel or rotor with a series of backward curved blades or vanes. In order to establish a design strategy within a constrained design window, two existing impellers B#1 and B#2 were first analyzed with a second-order accurate CFD method which solves a full compressible form of the Navier Stokes equations with preconditioning to obtain an efficient time-marching numerical scheme [9] for the incompressible flow. The computational resources from the Naval Oceanographic Office Major Shared Resource Center (NAVOCEANO MSRC) were provided through the DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP). There are two other parameters related to the lift-side performance. From the simulation results, it can be observed that as the rotation speed of the impeller increases, the pressure within the impeller increases. Figure 4 shows a denser mesh at the leading edge of the impeller. Side View of Pressure Distribution at 1150, outlet of the impeller has a pressure of 740. the speed of rotation was set at 1750 rpm. Even though the steer blade-1 required much lower shaft power, it unfortunately delivered much less head and output power. This approach has been used to develop a set of load and resistance factors instead of just a single safety factor to address all the uncertainties. We will be providing unlimited waivers of publication charges for accepted research articles as well as case reports and case series related to COVID-19.
