The Gas Turbine Process Compressor - Compresses the incoming air to high pressure. Combustion area - Burns the fuel and produces high-pressure, high-velocity gas. Turbine - Extracts the energy from the high-pressure, high-velocity gas flowing from the combustion chamber.
Secondly, which compressor has highest efficiency? A two-stage double-acting reciprocating compressor is the most energy-efficient air compressor. Typical specific power at 100 psig is approximately 15 kW/100 cfm to 16 kW/100 cfm.
Similarly, you may ask, what is the work of a compressor?
A compressor is a mechanical device that increases the pressure of a gas by reducing its volume. An air compressor is a specific type of gas compressor. Compressors are similar to pumps: both increase the pressure on a fluid and both can transport the fluid through a pipe.
What is compressor efficiency?
Compression Efficiency. Compression efficiency is usually defined as the adiabatic efficiency also known as isentropic efficiency and so is the ratio of the adiabatic power to the PV card indicated power: EFF = AP / IP × 100 %
