This paper describes an analytical procedure for the prediction of the design point performance of a small centrifugal compressor. Results of a subsequent performance demonstration are presented. The geometry of the compressor was derived from an existing stage used in the PW200 engine, but rematched to 6:1 pressure ratio.

Test data obtained from subsequent performance demonstration showed that the predicted performance had been achieved, but at 103% of design speed. A possible cause of this discrepancy is proposed.
