Abstract:

An analytical procedure for determining the energy and volume characteristics of piston compressors operating with real gases is described. A differential equation of the change of gas pressure in a cylinders obtained by using the first law of thermodynamics for bodies of variable mass. Formulas for calculating compressors delivery coefficient and indicated compressors power are derived.
