Different design/analysis tools are combined in an automatic procedure for the design of radial turbomachinery. The algorithms developed have different complexity levels ranging from the meanline one-dimensional design tool to the fully three-dimensional Navier-Stokes based analysis. Each code gives complementary information to the designer. The codes have been written and developed by the author at DIMSET. The design procedure is developed for both radial compressors and turbines and it is proposed for the dimensioning of rotating machinery for microgasturbine power plants.
