The design features and development experience of an advanced automotive gas turbine centrifugal compressor are presented. The compressor was designed with moderately low specific speed, high blade aerodynamic loading, and design point on the choke characteristic. A cascade diffuser was used; a new design approach brought about an unusual performance characteristic. The influence of impeller blade loading on performance is presented. Lessons learned are summarized.
