Efficiency of Multi-Stage Turbomachines

  • Meinhard  T. SchobeiriEmail author


In Chapter 6, we derived the equations for calculation of different losses that occur within a stage of a turbomachine. As shown, the sum of those losses determines the stage efficiency which shows the capability of energy conversion within the stage. The stage efficiency, however, is not fully identical with the efficiency of the entire turbomachine.
