January 24, 2011 – Motor Sich PJSC, Zaporozhye, Ukraine, and Concepts NREC, Wilder, Vermont, USA are pleased to announce the achievement of a successful outcome in their design collaboration on a high pressure centrifugal compressor for a helicopter gas turbine engine. Motor Sich designed the centrifugal compressor stage using Concepts NREC’s compressor design/analysis software and technical assistance. The compressor has undergone several rounds of development testing in Motor Sich’s test facilities for a number of different diffuser configurations.
The latest compressor design achieved target performance levels, including a design pressure ratio of 11.5 and a maximum stage efficiency of over 80%. As stated by Motor Sich, the achieved compressor performance will allow significant time savings in the certification cycle and flight testing of the engine.
