A semi-empirical mathematical model is proposed to simulate the unsteady behavior of mass flow rate and power of reciprocating compressors. The model is based on thermodynamic equations fitted to calorimeter data sets of two compressors. The curve fitting suggests linear correlations between the measured values and the thermodynamic equations. Comparisons… CONTINUE READING
