Stack up

The interaction between the stages of a centrifugal compressor. When a multi-stage compressor is designed, each stage can operate at only one point its characteristic curve. The point is determine by the design conditions of temperature, flow and pressure. As the design conditions change the point on the stage characteristic curve will shift. The interaction of each stage curve is referred to as the "stack up" of the compressor.(0103)
