There are two main reasons why compressor capacity regulation is used. The most prevalent reason is to adjust the suction flow to match the process demand. The second reason is to save energy. As a rule, capacity control is determined by the compressor discharge pressure. Compressor capacity-control methods are utilized to maintain a required delivery under variable process conditions. In this article, methods for controlling the capacity of reciprocating compressors are
