Multi-Point, Multi-Objective Optimization of Centrifugal Fans by 3D Inverse Design Method

Written by Prof. Mehrdad Zangeneh, University College London, and Dr. Jiangnan Zhanf, Advanced Design Technology, Ltd.

What's inside?

In this paper, we present the design and optimisation of a centrifugal fan with requirements of maximizing the pressure rise and efficiency at two operating points and the maximum torque provided by the motor power using 3D inverse design method, DOE (Design of Experiment), RSM (Response Surface Model) and MOGA (Multi-objective Genetic Algorithm).


Multi-Point, Multi-Objective Optimization of Centrifugal Fans Cover

The pressure rise and efficiencies at two operating points are improved significantly and the improvement is validated using steady-state CFD simulations.

In this publication, you will:

  1. Discover the design technics and optimisation for a centrifugal fan with specific requirements;
  2. Understand how the 3D inverse design approach enables turbomachinery designers to develop this design within a short time;
  3. See how to generate 120 designs with only 13 design parameters.
