In this study, optimization of the impeller and design of volute were carried out in order to improve the performance of a centrifugal pump. Design parameters from vane plane development for impeller design were selected and effect of the design parameters on the performance of the pump was analyzed using CFD and Response Surface Method to optimized impeller. This study also proposed the optimization geometry of pump impeller for performance improvement through the results from numerical analysis that was obtained optimum design pump; efficiency 98.2% and head 64.5m. In addition, the pump design method was suggested by designing volute which was suitable for the optimized impeller through volute design where Stepanoff theory was applied and numerical analysis. © 2013 Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
