An Analytical Model of Heat Transfer to the Suction Gas in a Low-Side Hermetic Refrigeration Compressor


H. Doyle Thompson Dept. of Mechanical Engineering Purdue University W. Lafayette, IN 47907 .(317) 494-5624 Heat transfer to the suction gas in a hermetic compressor is known to have adverse effects on compressor performance. This can be explained in an overall sense by thermodynamic cycle analysis. The extent of suction gas heated. inside the compressor and… (More)
