Blade and stage efficiencies are different on account of the
variable energy inputs and losses.
Further, stage efficiency accounts for the stage losses. While,
blade efficiency or blade utilization factor doesnt consider
this.

There is no pressure drop in the in the rotor blades, so the
relative velocities at their entry and exit are the same (w

Velocity compounded impulse stages have the following
disadvantages :
Nozzles have to be of the converging-diverging type to
generate high velocities. Hence, blade design is more
difficult and expensive.
High velocity at nozzle exit leads to higher cascade losses
due to the formation of shock waves.
Pressure compounding eliminates these problems by :
Dividing the pressure drop between many stages, and thus
reducing leakage losses.
Lower stage velocities at subsonic speeds also reduce the
stage losses.
