Abstract

Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) turbines usually operate in thermodynamic regions characterized by high-pressure ratios and strong non-ideal gas effects, complicating the aerodynamic design significantly. Systematic optimization methods accounting for multiple uncertainties due to variable operating conditions, referred to as Robust Optimization may benefit to ORC turbines aerodynamic design. This study presents an original and fast robust shape optimization approach to overcome the limitation of a deterministic optimization that neglects operating conditions variability, applied to a well-known supersonic turbine nozzle for ORC applications. The flow around the blade is assumed inviscid and adiabatic and it is reconstructed using the open-source SU2 code. The non-ideal gasdynamics is modeled through the Peng-Robinson-Stryjek-Vera equation of state. We propose here a mono-objective formulation which consists in minimizing the α-quantile of the targeted Quantity of Interest (QoI) under a probabilistic constraint, at a low computational cost. This problem is solved by using an efficient robust optimization approach, coupling a stateof-the-art quantile estimation and a classical Bayesian optimization method. First, the advantages of a quantile-based formulation are illustrated with respect to a conventional mean-based robust optimization. Secondly, we demonstrate the effectiveness of applying this robust optimization framework with a low-fidelity inviscid solver by comparing the resulting optimal design with the ones obtained with a deterministic optimization using a fully turbulent solver.
