I am facing an error, I am simulating a compressor CFD simulation, working fluid air.

The error is following.
Why is it happening?

Is it because of my boundary conditions

"The maximum Mach number is 3.709E+01. " why this is showing?

This seems to be associated with density of air & absolute pressure. Please share Boundary conditions details & Models beings used or the .out file.

Your simulation has diverged and the crazy Mach number in the iteration before it diverges is because it is starting to go haywire.

See FAQ: https://www.cfd-online.com/Wiki/Ansy...do_about_it.3F

There is nothing obviously wrong with the output file, but that only shows part of what is happening. Have you read the FAQ I linked to? It says exactly what you need to look for.

Are your boundary conditions correct ?
Is it correct, that your Inlet Total pressure is set dependent on the outlet total pressure of your diffuser?

Opaque will become famous soon enough
Zacko's comment is spot ON.

For a device that requires work (rotor does), and includes friction (viscous fluid), how can the Total Pressure can be conserved from Inlet to Outlet

Total pressure Outlet = Total Pressure Inlet + <Total Pressure Increase due to work> - Total Pressure Losses (Rotor + Stator)

Something seems wrong.
