This process simulator is Design II by WinSim, Inc. (Sugar Land, Texas). To use this program, the engineer can lay out a basic process that can be as simple as a line to a compressor and a line leaving the compressor. The gas mixture is assigned to the input line. The compressor is assigned a few parameters, such as desired discharge pressure, an efficiency (either isentropic or polytropic), and whether the compression process desired is isentropic or polytropic (based on the input efficiency).

It has been implied that k is constant over the compression path. The sad fact is that it is not really true. 53. 32, the k assumes the singular specific heat ratio value, such as at compressor suction conditions. 66, k at 2 will not necessarily be the same as k at 1. Fortunately, in many practical conditions the k doesn’t change very much. But if one were inclined to be a bit more judicious about it and calculate a k at both state points, and if the values differed by a small amount, then one could average the two and never look back.

As the impeller rotates, gas is moved between the rotating blades from the Figure 1-13. Radial-flow horizontally split multistage centrifugal compressor. 2005 9:46am Compressors: Selection and Sizing area near the shaft and radially outward to discharge into a stationary section called a diffuser. Energy is transferred to the gas while it is traveling through the impeller. Part of the energy converts to pressure along the blade path while the balance remains as velocity at the impeller tip where it is slowed in the diffuser and converted to pressure.
