Generally, droplets are injected into air at inlet or interstage of a compressor. However, both cases did not consider how to utilize the kinetic energy of these moving droplets. Under the adverse pressure gradient of compressor, the lower energy fluids of blade surfaces and endwalls boundary layers would accumulate and separate. Kinetic droplets could accelerate the lower energy fluids and eliminate the separation. This paper mainly investigate the effective positions where to inject water and how to utilize the droplets’ kinetic energy. Four different injecting positions, which located on the suction surface and endwall, are chosen. The changes of vortexes in the compressor cascade are discussed carefully. In addition, the influences of water injection on temperature, total pressure losses and Mach number are analyzed. Numerical simulations are performed for a highly loaded compressor cascade with ANSYS CFX software.
