Turbocharger: Mass flow rate and pressure ratio

  1. Oct 16, 2015 #1
    Hello everyone,

    i am currently dimensioning a compression system using a vehicle turbocharger and need to find a way to relate the pressure ratio of the compressor and the mass flow rate. (flows trough compressor and turbine are of course separated)

    For the turbine, one can use Stodola's cone law (or ellipse Law) but i don't believe that it is valid or applicable for compressors. Am i wrong?

    The inlet conditions and the pressure ratio are known.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    I figured out by myself how to calculate the mass flow as a function of the pressure ratio
