    Abstract: In this current work, the design of a single stage centrifugal compressor as part of a complete small gas turbine coupled directly to high speed permanent magnet running at 60000rpm and developing a maximum electrical power of 60kW is presented. The choice of a radial impeller was considered and the design was based on using a non-linear optimisati... Show More
