Résumé

Wobble plate compressors are well used in air conditioning for high-class automobiles. They allow continuous control by automatic adjustment of the piston stroke, to keep the low pressure above a certain limit. Here an externally controlled wobble plate compressor is analyzed experimentally through its isentropic and volumetric effectivenesses and control characteristics. Compressor effectivenesses depend mainly on the compressor speed and pressure ratio: there is obtained, for example, isentropic and volumetric effectivenesses of 0.65 and 0.8 for a pressure ratio of 4 at 1000 rpm and 0.4 and 0.35 for the same pressure ratio at 4000 rpm. This degradation is attributed to the increasing of the supply pressure drop. The "lubricant" (oil + dissolved refrigerant) mass flow rate is obtained by minimization of the residuals of the thermal balances on the compressor, condenser and evaporator. Here an important oil-flow circulation is obtained: between 9.5 and 12.5% of the refrigerant flow rate. A special displacement sensor is used to measure instantaneous piston stroke and to relate it to overall compressor performance. This measurement is then compared with the results obtained with a semi-empirical model, which is able to predict, in part load, the compressor displacement. The model predicts the displacement ratio with deviations that vary between -14.5 and +8.1%.
