RIG TESTS AND DEVELOPMENT OF TURBOCHARGER COMPRESSOR

Performances of turbocharger compressor are produced by behaviour of impeller, vaneless diffuser and scroll. Rig tests were carried out in order to evaluate the performances of each of them at different mass flows and speeds. To perform those tests a compressor of turbocharger for automotive application was instrumented by static pressure probes and thermocouples. The experimental results showed the actual pressure recovery through the impeller and the diffuser and the distortions in the scroll and allowed to calibrate the prediction computer programs in order to optimize compressor design.
