The flow conditions in a mixed flow rotor are investigated for a “pressure balanced” flow path design. Boundary layer arguments are applied to calculate the losses in the rotor as well as in the subsequent diffuser section. The resulting efficiency data imply a comparatively high efficiency potential for mixed flow compressors with multiple cascaded components, designed on the premise of a “pressure balanced” rotor flow path.
