The aerodynamic performance of a turbine design is usually optimized for a selected working fluid. If the same turbine design could be used for different applications and working fluids, it would be possible to achieve a further economy of scale, hence realizing more cost-competitive turbine solutions. The objective of this work is to investigate the impact of using different working fluids on the aerodynamic performance of a radial-inflow turbine for organic Rankine cycle (ORC) applications. The geometrical parameters and the physical mechanisms affecting the turbine performance will be identified to explain the effects of a change in the working fluid. The aerodynamic performance of the turbine will be assessed using computational fluid-dynamic simulations with the ANSYS Workbench.
