Energy Consumption and Energy Saving Research Status of Air Compressor System
As the most widely used fourth energy, compressed air system has high operating costs. The research about energy consumption and energy optimization measures of compressed air system has become the new field to achieve energy saving among countries all over the world. In recent years, air compressor system researches in energy consumption, influence factors, energy saving technologies and energy efficiency evaluation have been carried out at home and abroad, and some achievements have been achieved. This paper summarizes energy consumption research status of air compressor system at home and abroad, and energy-saving technologies of compressed air in generation link, treatment link and gas link, and energy efficiency evaluation methods for of air compressor systems. Potentials and drawbacks of current researches are analyzed simultaneously. In the end energy-saving development directions of air compressor system are predicted.
