An example of optimisation of high-turning outlet guide vanes for subsonic compressor stage is implemented in a new approach for blade profile topology. This topology includes types of curves on PS, SS, the number of control points and the distribution law, where several coefficients are implemented as function of the upstream flow. This functional law is defined during optimisation procedures for profiles with different parameters (Mach, inlet angle, turning angle, solidity) and further correlation analysis. As a result an 8 degree gain in turning angle for last stage guide vane is achieved. Also possible design is provided for a 12 degree gain in turning angle with higher pressure losses on 20% (relatively).
