Abstract

One-dimensional (1D) modeling is crucial for turbomachinery unsteady performance prediction and system response assessment. The purpose of the paper is to describe a newly developed 1D modeling (turbomachinery dynamic simulator (TURBODYNA)) for turbomachinery. Different from classic 1D modeling, in TURBODYNA, rotor has been meshed and its unsteadiness due to flow field timescale is considered. Instead of direct using of performances maps, source terms are added in Euler equation set to simulate the rotor. By comparing 1D modeling with three-dimensional (3D) computational fluid dynamics (CFD) results, it shows that rotor unsteadiness is indispensable for a better prediction. In addition, different variables response to pulse differently. In the rotor, mass flow is close to quasi-steady while entropy is significantly unsteady. TURBODYNA can capture these features correctly and provide an accurate prediction on pressure wave transportation.
