Springer-Verlag, Berlin, Germany (in German) 2 Thermodynamics of Real Gases Although the pertinent formulae for the compressibility factor, the polytropic volume and temperature exponent were published in the 1940s, the message has, even today, not reached all engineering contractors that different exponents for calculating head and temperature have to replace the traditional "ratio of specific heats", which is irrelevant for real process gases.

The molar isobaric heat capacity Mc p for perfect gas behavior is compiled in tables for various gases as a function of temperature at pressures of approximately 1 bar. This so-called k-value or Mcp-method operates without any pressure correction. 4) This method can be used as an approximation with an accuracy of around ±3% for the head, especially in those cases where the software is not available to make a calculation on the basis of the real-gas equation (Nelson-Obert Chart in Fig. 1 and MCp-values in Fig.

Cd . · . cs P +m. 4) Since the heat loss Q of a compressor section due to convection and radiation amounts to only approximately 1% of the energy input, it is justified to regard the compressor as adiabatically enclosed. e. the specific work input equals the specific total enthalpy difference of the gas flow between the compressor inlet and exit. The term "specific" denotes "mass referenced" . e. lossless) reference processes are defined. The specific work of the selected reference process serves as the criterion of assessment for the real specific work input, stating how far the real process is successful in avoiding losses.
