A scroll air compressor was experimentally tested in three configurations: stock, integrated with a heat pipe rejecting heat by free convection to the ambient atmosphere, and integrated with a heat pipe rejecting heat by forced convection to the ambient atmosphere. Each configuration was tested over a range of motor speeds. Parameters of interest included mass flow rate, pressure ratio, scroll compressor component temperatures, discharge air temperature, and power consumption. Furthermore, a simple computer model was developed in Excel and used to further analyze the experimental data.
