A novel four-chamber rotary compressor (FCRC) is being developed for a refrigerator and an air-conditioning system. The novelty lies in the usage of three rotating sleeves and two oppositely installed vanes each has one end fixed to an outer sleeve and the other end to a rotor, respectively. In this paper, the swept volume, the delivered pressure, the work and the power of the FCRC are formulated and analyzed. The compressor configuration and thermodynamic analysis are based on the 174 cc swept volume with R134a as the compressed gas. Considering the encouraging results, added by design simplicity of mainly cylindrical shaped components, the proposed FCRC is reckoned to be very suitable to be used for air-conditioning and refrigeration applications.
