The turbine outlet heated diffuser may include a cavity positioned immediately downstream of an air cycle machine turbine. The turbine outlet heated diffuser may be designed to prevent or reduce ice formation at the turbine outlet by heating the diffuser wall. The cavity may receive a heated flow from an air cycle machine compressor discharge and provide a cavity outlet flow to a turbine inlet plenum. The design of the heated diffuser is such to minimize the cycle performance impact that results from the addition of an air cycle machine icing protection ...
1. An apparatus for a turbine comprising: a diffuser structure;a cavity at least partially defined by said diffuser structure, said cavity positioned radially outward from and towards an outlet of said turbine;at least one cavity inlet opening in flow communication with said cavity; andat least one cavity outlet opening in flow communication with said cavity and an inlet plenum of said turbine, said cavity being downstream, in reference to turbine outlet flow, of said inlet plenum. 2. The apparatus of claim 1, wherein said turbine comprises an air cycle ...
