The article deals with the choice of key geometric parameters and the range of their variation in solving the optimization problem of centrifugal compressor impellers using computational fluid dynamics. The study was carried out using Numeca Fine / Turbo package. The influence of more than 10 geometric parameters on the efficiency and the head of the impeller was considered. The influence degree evaluation of investigated optimization parameters was provide by changing the parameters value in a

As a result, the main geometric parameters of optimization, which should be considered first, were identified. Other parameters may not be considered within the optimization problem, and can be assigned to the standard values. In addition, recommendations on optimal ranges of parameter values were given.
