Pneurop/Cagi Acceptance Code for Electrically Driven Packaged Displacement Air

Compressor.

The acceptance code specifies that the following tolerances are permitted when

carrying out performance tests on packaged air compressors.

CFM On-load Off-load

Speed +/- 4%

In the first instance we shall simply carry out a few calculations on a theoretical 1000 cfm two stage inter-cooled oil-free

packaged rotary air compressor with an interstage pressure of 26 psig, (Ö P2*P1) intercooling temperature of 90 deg F and a

discharge pressure of 100 psig. The compression will not be isentropic as some cooling will take place during the compression

cycle. To approximate actual compression conditions, we shall assume an adiabatic efficiency of 75% during compression of

both stages. The actual atmospheric pressure is 14.7 psia, and the actual discharge pressure is 100 psig. Then we shall carry out

the same calculations using the permitted tolerances on inlet pressure and discharge pressure.

Assume.

g = 1.4

J = 778

1st Stage

Cv = R/J(g-1) = 0.171 Btu/lb degF g = Cp/Cv

T2/T1 = (P2/P)**((g-1)/g))

But the unit is only 75% isentropically efficient,

\ Hp = mCp(T2 - T1) * J / 33000 = 73.55 * 0.239 (782.7 - 540) * 778 / 33000 = 100.58 hp

2nd Stage

T2/T1 = (P2/P)**((g-1)/g))

But the unit is only 75% isentropically efficient,

\ Hp = mCp(T2 - T1) * J / 33000 = 73.55 * 0.239 (802 - 550) * 778 / 33000 = 104.43 hp

Total package power ignoring motor losses, gearbox losses etc. = 205 hp

If we do the same calculations using the tolerances allowed by Pneurop/Cagi at the top end of the allowable conditions,

i.e. absolute inlet pressure +10%, discharge pressure -3%, we get the following.

g = 1.4

J = 778

1st Stage

Cp = 0.239 Btu/lb degF

T2/T1 = (P2/P)**((g-1)/g))

But the unit is only 75% isentropically efficient,

2nd Stage

T2/T1 = (P2/P)**((g-1)/g))

But the unit is only 75% isentropically efficient,

\ Hp = mCp(T2 - T1) * J / 33000 = 80.9 * 0.239 (795 - 550) * 778 / 33000 = 111.68 hp

Total package power ignoring motor losses, gearbox losses etc. = 210.6 hp

If we do the same calculations using the tolerances allowed by Pneurop/Cagi at the bottom end of the conditions, i.e.

absolute inlet pressure -10%, discharge pressure +3%, we get the following.

g = 1.4

J = 778

1st Stage

T2/T1 = (P2/P)**((g-1)/g))

But the unit is only 75% isentropically efficient,

\ Hp = mCp(T2 - T1) * J / 33000 = 66.19 * 0.239 (812.5 - 540) * 778 / 33000 = 101.63 hp

2nd Stage

T2/T1 = (P2/P)**((g-1)/g))

But the unit is only 75% isentropically efficient,

\ Hp = mCp(T2 - T1) * J / 33000 = 66.19 * 0.239 (809.9 - 550) * 778 / 33000 = 96.93 hp

Total package power ignoring motor losses, gearbox losses etc. = 198.56 hp

Summary:

Case 1. Actual flow of 1000 cfm at 14.7 psia inlet with a discharge of 100 psig.

You can convert air mass flow rate back to a standard volume occupied by air at 14.504 psia (1 bara). This equates to 0.80

You can convert air mass flow rate back to a standard volume occupied by air at 14.504 psia (1 bara). This equates to 0.80

lb/cu ft. By using the magic words '1 bar absolute inlet pressure' in your sales leaflets, the above compressor will therefore

produce anything from 827.37 cfm FAD up to 1011 cfm FAD, simply by working within the applicable pressure tolerances

permitted under the Pneurop/Cagi test procedures.

Now we can apply the other tolerances, the volume flow rate can be overstated or understated by +/- 4%, independent of the

pressure calculations. This widens the volume flow rate band even further, now being 794.27 cfm FAD at the bottom end and

1051.44 cfm FAD at the top.

Now you can apply the specific energy tolerance of +/- 5%, this is independent of the other two calculations. The lowest

power absorbed figure reduces to 188.63 hp, the highest power figure increases to 221.13 hp.

In terms of power conversion, you can basically choose your own figures, anything from:

up to

A working tolerance of around 30%. Don't lose sight of the fact that all of these calculations are for the same machine, just

using the extremes of the permitted legal tolerances. Which figures do you think the compressor manufacturer will choose for

their sales leaflets and presentations?
