Prof. Y. Galerkin and his team have developed and completed designs of 19 single-stage centrifugal compressors for turbo-expander packaged units applying Universal Modeling Method for the company “Turbokholod JSC” since 2005. The most powerful compressor is 6500 kW. The highest delivery pressure is 12 MPa. One hundred fifteen turbo-expander packaged units with total capacity 400 000 kW were manufactured, installed and were in operation in December 2018. The gas-dynamic characteristics of compressors comply with technical specification when operated within given range of initial temperatures and initial and final pressures up to 16 combinations for some compressors. The dimensionless characteristics of the compressor stages vary within the range of design parameters: flow rate coefficient 0.0278-0.0697, loading factor 0.43-0.71. The simulation of gas-dynamic characteristics of one of the designed compressors by the newest version of mathematical model is presented as an example, demonstrating the simulation features and effectiveness.
