Stage performance characteristics provide a powerful analytic tool for experimentally matching the stages and blade rows of an axial-flow compressor, while the variable stage compressor component test rig provides a most powerful experimental tool for developing compressors. This paper describes: Why and how the stage characteristics “normalized” to correct them for changes of stator setting angles, how these normalized characteristics can be fully defined for every stage; and how these characteristic can point the way to a well-matched configuration of setting angles. In addition, it proposes methods for distinguishing between the stall of rotors and stators and for normalizing the characteristics of stages with variable-setting rotor blade rows.
