Abstract

Rotary screw compressors are widely used for refrigeration application s to compress ammonia & other refrigerating gases. Capacity control is used in screw compressor to vary the amount of gas drawn into the compressor. This is necessary to provide accurate suction pressure control as the evaporator load varies. One of the commonly used methods used is slide valve control of discharge port. It enables capacity control from 10-100%. VFDS are increasingly use for capacity control for screw Compressor as they are more energy efficient and can be used in a closed loop control system for precise control of suction pressure as evaporator load varies.

Keywords

Rotary screw compressor, Load operation with and without VFD.
