Abstract: Pump is used to convert mechanical energy into hydraulic energy; the task is to lift water from lower altitude and to deliver at high altitude. Impeller and casing are the major part of a centrifugal pump (CP), thus they have to be designed in a way that the pumps produces maximum efficiency. To achieve this Computational Fluid Dynamics Analysis (CFDA) is performed. It is a highly developed tools used in many industries. Complete CFDA was performed to forecast flow pattern at inner part of impeller. Results of analysis lead to forecast velocity and pressure at outlet of impeller. CFDA is done on ANSYS CFX software. In this paper, analysis is continued on existing impeller and modified impeller by varying its blade angle both at inlet as well as outlet
