Abstract

This paper deals with the design and analysis of centrifugal pump. Pump is a device mainly used for transporting liquid from lower level to higher level. In pumps the mechanical energy is converted into hydraulic energy. The two main components of centrifugal pump are impeller and casing therefore, they must be carefully designed for better performance of pump. In the present work the conventional design of pump is carried out using empirical equations and then the model of closed impeller was generated using SOLIDWORKS and the same model was analyzed in ANSYS (Workbench) Fluid Flow (CFX). The analysis is done of existing impeller along with modified impeller by changing its inlet and outlet vane angles and number of blades. The main objective of this work is to design the pump, model the impeller and obtain maximum efficiency then the existing impeller by selecting the optimum vane angles and number of blades.
