A five-stage transonic compressor was designed and tested to obtain overall performance and surge limits over a wide rotational speed range. Compressor surge limits are evaluated using individual stage performance characteristics with the aid of a single-stage test. These show that surging at low rotational speed occurs when rotating stall occurs in the first stage and that the wider operating range multi-stage compressor can be realized with the lower aspect ratio blades. On the basis of these test results, a simple model is constructed in order to evaluate the effect of the axial velocity ratio on the flow in a rotor blade row.
