Optimization design of a reversible pump-turbine runner with high efficiency and stability

The paper describes a multiobjective optimization design system, including a 3D inverse design, computational fluid dynamics, design of experiment, response surface methodoloy, multiobjective genetic algorithm, is introduced and applied to the design of a middle-high-head pump turbine runner. 

Parametric Design of a Waterjet Pump by Means of Inverse Design, CFD Calculations and Experimental Analyses

The present paper describes the parametric design of a mixed-flow water-jet pump. The pump impeller and diffuser geometries were parameterized by means of an inverse design method, while CFD analyses were performed to assess the hydrodynamic and suction performance of the different design configurations that were investigated.

Choice of Optimum Blade Loading in Application of 3D Inverse Design to Design of Pumps and Fans

The present paper describes the parametric design of a mixed-flow water-jet pump. The pump impeller and diffuser geometries were parameterized by means of an inverse design method, while CFD analyses were performed to assess the hydrodynamic and suction performance of the different design configurations that were investigated.

Design Optimisation of Cryogenic Pump Inducer

The present paper describes the parametric design of a mixed-flow water-jet pump. The pump impeller and diffuser geometries were parameterized by means of an inverse design method, while CFD analyses were performed to assess the hydrodynamic and suction performance of the different design configurations that were investigated.

Hydraulic development of high specific-speed Pump-turbines by means of an inverse design method, numerical flowsimulation (CFD) and model testing

In recent years an increased interest in pump-turbines has been recognized in the market. The rapid availability of pumped storage schemes and the benefits to the power system by peak lopping, providing reserve and rapid response for frequency control are becoming of growing advantage.

A Fast 3D Inverse Design Based Multi-Objective Optimization Strategy for Design of Pumps

A methodology for designing pumps to meet multi-objective design criteria is presented. The method combines a 3D inviscid inverse design method with a multi-objective genetic algorithm to design pumps which meet various aerodynamic and geometrical requirements.

Multi-Objective Design Optimization of a Mixed-Flow Pump

In most cases of high specific speed mixed-flow pump applications, it is necessary to satisfy more than one performance characteristic such as deign point efficiency, shutoff power/head and non-stall characteristic (no positive slope in flow-head curve).

Development of Cryogenic Pump Hydrodynamics Using Inverse Design Method and CFD

This paper presents the results of the development of a cryogenic pump, consisting of inducer, impeller and diffuser, for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) transfer and pressurization.

Compact Waterjets for High-Speed Ships

A fully three-dimensional compressive inverse design method for the design of radial and mixed flow turbomachines is described.
