In recent years, transient response analysis of energy systems is becoming more and more important in optimizing plant operation and control. Furthermore, dynamic analyses are also used to integrate steady-state diagnostic analyses, since they allow the detection of malfunctions characterized by time-dependent effects. The paper deals with the development of a nonlinear modular model for compressor dynamic simulation. After developing the compressor mathematical model through a physics-based approach (laws of conservation and thermal balances), the model is implemented through the MATLAB® SIMULINK® tool. Then, a sensitivity analysis is carried out to evaluate the influence of model parameters on the model response. Finally, the model is calibrated on a multistage axial-centrifugal small size compressor running in the test facility of the University of Ferrara (Italy) and validated through experimental data taken on the compressor under investigation.
