Radial turbines’ preliminary designs are usually carried out through some dimensionless approaches, such as the loading-to-flow-diagram and/or the blade speed ratio. In case of variable nozzle radial turbines, multi-points specifications must be considered, related to the improvement of the operating range. As preliminary design correlations and standards usually taken into consideration arise from studies dedicated to fixed geometry radial turbines, they need to be updated with regard to nozzle off-design opening configurations. This paper provides some theoretical basics in order to help designers considering variable geometry problems. Some complementary elements about the dimensionless methods are given by taking into account the nozzle opening effect. Then, useful considerations are brought regarding the preliminary design of variable geometry radial turbines with multi-points specifications.
