What is Turbomachinery?
Turbomachines are devices within which the conversion of the total energy of a working medium into mechanical energy and vice versa takes place. Turbomachines are generally divided into two main categories. The first category is used primarily to produce power. It includes, among others, steam turbines, gas turbines, and hydraulic turbines. The main function of the second category is to increase the total pressure of the working fluid by consuming power. It includes compressors, pumps, and fans. Pumps and turbines have lots of different types due to their applications; however, the most popular ones in the industry are axial and centrifugal. Optimization of turbomachines is of great importance in the industry as they consume a large amount of energy and therefore better performance of turbomachines reduces energy consumption and finally will help us to have a cleaner environment.
Turbomachinery simulations in ANSYS Fluent software
The basic theory behind the Turbomachinery modeling process can be explained through the transmission of the kinetic energy of the fluid flow to the turbomachine itself or vice versa. In the two categories mentioned earlier, for turbomachines like turbines, a flow having a specific pressure and momentum hits the blades of the mentioned turbine, therefore transmitting its energy to the turbine causing its shaft to rotate inside a generator and produce various forms of energy such as electricity. However, in machines like pumps and compressors, electricity is needed to rotate the impeller of such machines in order to transmit energy to fluid for secondary targets.
