Scroll Compressor

Short Description

This model describes a hermetic scroll compressor. The model involves a limited number of parameters physically meaningful. The model accounts for the supply heating-up and exhaust cooling down of the gas, an internal leakage, the internal compression ratio and the electromechanical losses. The model is the one proposed by Winandy et al. (2002). Information used to identify the parameters is extracted from Copeland’s catalogue (ZR72KC-TFD)
