The purpose of a turbocharger is to increase the power output of an engine by supplying compressed air to the engine intake manifold so that fuel can be burnt efficiently. In this work, thermodynamic design of a high pressure ratio centrifugal compressor, for 75 kW class engines, was carried out. A pressure ratio of 2.8 was considered with a compressor rotational speed of 60,000 RPM. The compressor was designed for vane less diffuser. The impeller designs were obtained using circular method, with six divisions. The CAD models were built using CATIA. The geometry was then tested using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations to verify the thermodynamic based design.
