The radial turbine is a key component of the Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) power generation system. In order to improve the performance of ORC system for low temperature heat sources, a 150kW radial turbine using R600a has been designed and analyzed. First, the aerodynamic calculation of the radial turbine was conducted and one-dimensional aerodynamic parameters were obtained. Then three-dimensional CFD numerical analysis has been conducted to optimize the geometric design of the radial turbine. The results show the distribution of the flow field around the blades at different height and streamline distribution from leading edge to the trailing edge. At last, the effect of rotation speed on the performance of radial turbine was analyzed. The results can provide basic data for the design of radial turbine of ORC power generation system for low temperature heat sources.
