Definition and Classifications o turbomachine- device in which energy is transferred either to or from a continuous flowing fluid by the action of one or more moving blade rows. MAE 14:650:474 Alternative Energy Systems 2 o examples: wind, hydroelectric, gas or combustion turbine o classified as compressors (or pumps) and turbines o compressor (pump or fan) – energy is added to the fluid as the fluid traverses the rotor o turbine – energy is extracted from the fluid as the fluid traverses the rotor
Classifications o second way classifying turbo machines is by the path of fluid: radial, axial or mixed o radial flow – the path of the fluid is in the radial direction MAE 14:650:474 Alternative Energy Systems 3

MAE 14:650:474 Alternative Energy Systems Analysis o torque as a function of mass flow rate, assuming (Euler Turbine/Pump Equation): o 8 o o if then angular momentum is added to the flow device is a pump o if then angular moment is extracted from the flow - turbine o turbomachine sign convention: so that expression is positive for a turbine and negative for a pump
MAE 14:650:474 Alternative Energy Systems Analysis o power is torque times the rotation rate: o r ω = U = tangential velocity of the rotor at a radius of r. 9
