Abstract:

The power dissipated through losses in the inlet-compressor-ducting system is discussed. A simple illustrative derivation of the characteristics of a hypothetical compressor is carried out. These characteristics are then used to illustrate the construction of combined internal characteristics charts. The dominant influence of the air gap area in determining the necessary size of the compressors is emphasized. Author
