This paper introduces the features of using co-rotating vortex generators for controlling boundary layer and flow field in the inlet without flow separation. The principles of the arrangements of the blades and selection of constructional parameters of the generators that are applied to create the transverse flow between the high and low pressure regions and to reduce the secondary flow losses are analysed. The experimental results show that when the appropriate parameters of the co-rotating vortex generators are chosen for the inlet subsonic diffuser with apparent high and low pressure regions, not only the nonuniformity of the flow field is greatly improved but also the dynamic performance of the flow at exit is slightly improved.
