Dynamic analysis of a compressor mounting system.

Author(s) : LI W. L., EYO V.


Compressors are a primary cause for numerous HVAC noise and vibration problems. Typically, vibration energy is transmitted from the compressor to the chassis through piping and isolation mounts. The design of these attachments is thus of paramount importance in determining the dynamic performance of a HVAC unit. In the paper, a procedure for complete determination of the compressor vibration is described based on the rigid-body model. It can be used to reduce the number of measuring points in a vibration monitoring test. Further, a dynamic compressor system model is presented that allows to predict force transmissibilities and the responses of the compressor to the applied forces.
