We developed a mathematical model for determining the parameters of mass transfer in the compressor chambers during the processes of compression and discharge. The mass flow rates through the end and radial gaps were determined. Also we analyzed the processes of mass transfer in a clamped volume. We investigated the influence of the number of vanes on the compressor efficiency, taking into account changes in the compressor geometric parameters. We established that overflows through the end surfaces of rotor mainly affect the compressor performance. In order to reduce overflows during the period of discharge, it was proposed to increase the angle of closure of the discharge window at a fixed angle of its opening. The mathematical model allows one to make recommendations on the choice of the optimal number of vanes for a particular design.
