Ebm-Papst produces high-quality fans and motors for many markets such as heating and air-conditioning, ventilation, refrigeration, automotive, IT/telecom and drive technology.
The direct approach for designing a new impeller requires a lot of geometrical parameters. In addition, the correlation between geometrical parameters and aerodynamics is unknown in most cases. Therefore, a lot of CFD calculations or measurements have to be done until the best configuration is reached.
Advantage of TURBOdesign1
Searching for new tools to make the design process faster and more efficient, an extensive benchmark of available design tools was carried out at Ebm-
Papst. TURBOdesign1 shaped out to be the most suitable tool for developing new fan blades, the promising gain of time and a better understanding of the aerodynamics.
TURBOdesign1 can be a valuable tool in designing fans. It’s geometrical parameters are reasonable in realising the usual design specifications, with blade loading being an important parameter for aerodynamic and aeroacoustic optimisation.
