Abstract

The performance of the centrifugal fan will be achieved by the impeller and fan is always analyzed by its performance curves. In this paper improve the efficiency of centrifugal fan, various analytical software available which give the information about complex flow inside the impeller. Now, the experimental readings will be collected and analysis by software. For the analysis backward-swept blade centrifugal fan having 12 number of blade is selected. The model of the centrifugal fan is made in Solid work 2009 (made by Dassault System Company). The parameter like inlet blade angle, outlet blade angle, number of blade will be changed for analysis. Then experimental readings and software analysis results compared. From results obtained by changed geometry will be optimized by Tauguchi method. The results of this tauguchi method show the number of blade increase and outlet angle decrees and same inlet angle so that maximum outlet pressure of fan achieves and efficiency.
