The urgent need to transition to a climate-neutral society requires rapid development and adoption of renewable technologies. Key enablers of conventional and future renewable energy conversion technologies are turbomachines. However, the specific requirements of these turbines and compressors, e.g. operation under highly non-uniform flow or with novel fluids, make the available design methods insuffciently capable of providing effcient designs. Hence, novel and disruptive design methods are pivotal to achieve a paradigm shift in turbomachinery performance across all energy technology platforms.
