Centrifugal compressor: design and partial load handling

We offer a stand-alone software solution for designing and calculating centrifugal compressors. As a result it supplies the calculation of the design point and characteristic map (partial load handling), and the geometry of impeller and guide wheel.

The software is based on a program written in 1998 at the Fachhochschule Weingarten as dissertation (submitted for a diploma). Since then the software is used e.g. by Liebherr Lindenberg for designing centrifugal compressors, among others for the air conditoners in the Airbus or the ICE3. The dissertation is available if requested.


  • In addition to the design procedure there is a check procedure for compressors known already.
  • Calculation by total press as usual in aircraft construction.
