Experimental and numerical investigation to study the influence of add (one groove and two grooves) to the unshroud impeller onto the rotating stall as well fluctuations of pressure at a high speed blower of centrifugal. Experimental test rig which includes blower of centrifugal, transducer of pressure as well measurement instrumentations are constructed and designed for this study. A data acquisition system (hardware) as well its (software) have been developed into transferring the signal than transducer of pressure to the computer. The experimental work has been implemented through measuring the variation of static pressure as well fluctuation of pressure for two cases of the impeller (with one groove and with two grooves). Static pressure has been taken in different points arranged onto the frontal-wall of a volute casing along one track for two cases of the impeller. This track is angular track about the impeller. The results of experimental show that the fluctuations of pressure for different mass flow rates are nature of non-periodical and the mass flow rates decrease with the fluctuations of pressure increase. Also, the results indicate that the impeller with two grooves show high mass flow rates comparison with the impeller with one groove. Simulation of numerical has been implemented onto blower of centrifugal to analysis both field of flow as well fluctuations of pressure through using ANSYS (FLUENT 15). The simulation of numerical has been carried out through solve the continuity as well momentum equations with the moving reference framework technicality inside a blower. The numerical simulation results show good agreement with the results of experimental.
