Theoretical and experimental investigations have been made of the compressible flow power-transfer characteristics from a stationary nozzle to a detached receiver. The effect of the nozzle and receiver geometrical configuration on the power-transfer characteristics has been studied. Experimental data are included to illustrate the characteristic behavior of the system and to explain how the geometrical configuration should be chosen to obtain the best power recovery. Results and conclusions reached from this study can be used to approximate the compressible flow power transfer from a stationary nozzle to a rotating receiver.
