The rotary compressor is used in room air conditioners and refrigerators. Although a number of papers have been published on rotary compressors, in the area of dynamics only a few are found, and they lack a complete analysis. In this paper the rotary compressor dynamics is modeled in detail and experimental validation is presented. The effects of some variables on the dynamics are also described.
