Radial-inflow turbines have been developed as one important power generation systems for distributed generation options, because they have demonstrated higher levels of efficiency than small axial flow turbine . Radial-inflow turbine is a key part of microturbines and its aerodynamic performance affects directly on characteristics of whole microturbine system . This paper presents the numerical meanline analysis and overall performance prediction of radial-inflow turbine for a 600 kW cycle gas engine using a One-dimensional Computer FORTRAN Code (OFC) . This program was based mainly in non-dimensional parameters and it uses a one-dimensional solution of flow conditions through the turbine along the meanline. Comparison of predicted with analytical results determined performance for this turbine showed good agreement.
