Using 3D Inverse Design to Design High Efficiency Turbomachinery for Supercritical CO2

Supercritical CO2 cycles have the potential for a wide adoption across energy sources, increased cycle efficiency by about 5% and much more compact turbomachinery components compared to traditional Gas Turbines and Rankine cycles. However there are many design challenges associated to smaller, highly loaded turbomachinery and a different working fluid.

During this webinar we will provide an overview of these challenges and provide a turbomachinery development process based on 3D Inverse Design to consistently design high efficiency compressors and turbines for Supercritical CO2.
