The article presents results of applying the methods of computational fluid dynamics for model low-flow rate stages of centrifugal compressors with flow rate coefficient F = 0.028. The computational domain of a model centrifugal compressor for CFD-simulation consists of the following elements: inlet chamber, impeller, vaneless diffuser, return channel, outlet chamber, shaft seal labyrinth, front and back shroud leakage. Full-scale experimental studies were conducted to model stage 028 in air at an inlet pressure of p* = 1 atm. Numerical research for stage 028 held with flow rate coefficient F=(0.019-0.046) for three variants trailing edge of the impeller. According to the results of numerical research are constructed performances of stages centrifugal compressor and conducted verification of results. Estimated discrepancy between the results of numerical researches on the model with shaft seal labyrinth and without shaft seal labyrinth.
