The importance of the unsteady effects between the casing treatment and rotor is still not clear. Experiments are conducted in a transonic compressor with arc skewed slot casing treatment configurations. The experimental results indicate that the unsteady excitation frequency due to the slot number of casing treatment is one of the most important factors influencing compressor performance. Also, compressor performance can be overall enhanced through optimizing this unsteady excitation frequency. For the transonic compressor herein, peak efficiency, stall margin, and maximum flow mass can be improved by 0.17%, 19.86%, and 0.81%, respectively, at near design rotating speed, which can reach up to 1.13%, 57.84%, and 1.57%, respectively, at part design speed.
