Swing Double-vane Compressor, simulation, structural design, efficiency
In this paper, a novel rotary compressor, namely Swing Double-vane Compressor, was introduced. Based on the working principle of the compressor, thermodynamic model and kinetic model of upper and down vanes, rotor and eccentric shaft were established. Combined with each model, with the working efficiency as the objective function, the main structural sizes were optimally designed for the compressor by optimization algorithm, after which the working efficiency can be to 0.8757 and its theoretical displacement has improved by 66.94% compared with the single-vane compressor. According to this optimal design, it will provide theoretical foundation to improve the performance of the Swing Double-vane Compressor.
