This paper presents the results of experimental research of flow in an axial compressor cascade with different types of winglet on the blade tip, which consists of a suction-side winglet, pressure-side winglet and the combined winglet. The detailed tip leakage flow field with different winglet was described with total pressure loss coefficient, secondary streamline and axial vorticity on the cascade exit flow field. The mechanisms of the three passive control methods were illuminated. The result indicated that the tip clearance flow strengths could be reduced in all the three control strategies. The compressor aerodynamic performance could be improved via the addition of tip winglets. The suction-side winglet had the best effect on the cascade flow field, and the strength of leakage vortex and the associated mixture losses were reduced.
