Thermodynamic Analysis of Gas Compressor
This study focuses on the thermodynamic analysis of the compressor. A gas compressor is a device in which
work is done on the gas to raise its pressure, with an appreciable increase in density. The compression of the gases is an
important process in many power plants, refrigeration plants, and industrial plants. Industrial users occur in connection with
compressed air motors for tools, air brakes for vehicle, servo mechanism, metallurgical and chemical processes, conveying
of materials through ducts, transporting of natural gas, and production of bottled gases.
