CFD simulation results show that pressure loss through IGV is about 5000 Pa. As expected, IGV creates an acceptable flow angle at the eye of impeller. However, certain amount of reverse flow still exists in spite of careful design. This may be eliminated by the interaction of IGV and rotor, which would be simulated in the next stage. If the flow reversal still persists, IGV design will be modified by adjusting angle of IGV vanes.
