diffuser vane

diffuser vane

diffuser vane
Double-entry impeller.
A turning or cascading vane in a centrifugal-flow engine diffuser used to change air direction from radial, as it leaves the impeller, to axial, as it enters the combustors. Diffuser vanes assist in converting velocity into pressure.

Rubber elements mounted on the flat underside and ahead of the front wheel, together with an additional diffuser vane at the rear, help to modify airflow under the car, thereby reducing drag and increasing stability.
This conversion procedure was also performed for temperature measurements at the impeller exit, diffuser vane exit and return channel bend.
The VGT's diffuser vane and the turbine nozzle blade angles can be varied in real time so as to optimize overall compressor efficiency at any operating point.
For maximum efficiency, the angle [Alpha] of the true velocity leaving the compressor wheel, c, should exactly match the diffuser vane angle [[Alpha].

The compressor efficiency gain was achieved by advancing the design of the compressor impeller, volute, variable diffuser vanes, inlet guide vanes and controls.
Improvements in performance characteristics of single-stage and multistage centrifugal compressors by simultaneous adjustments of inlet guide vanes and diffuser vanes, Trans.
The effective cross-sectional area was the fraction of the outlet's cross-sectional area not blocked by diffuser vanes, and was taken, since values for the actual diffusers were not available, from manufacturer's data for similar diffuser grills, to be 0.
This device has the advantage of a sensor probe that can get into the access areas of a ventilation system and between diffuser vanes to measure humidity.
For this design, however, easy-to-manufacture trumpet-shaped diffuser channels were made possible by so-called symmetrical half-moon-shaped diffuser vanes.
An unbalanced ratio of the number of diffuser vanes to the number of compressor rotor blades is preferred.
Only in rare cases are adjustable diffuser vanes used.
