Compare Compressors or Turbines with Different Efficiencies
This Demonstration compares two adiabatic compressors or turbines with different efficiencies. Air, which is assumed to be an ideal gas, is either compressed or expanded. Select "compressor" or "turbine" and whether to compare at the same outlet pressure or temperature, using buttons. Select the outlet pressure or temperature and efficiency of each turbine or compressor with sliders. The efficiency is relative to a reversible turbine or compressor.
