Abstract

•Empirical models for centrifugal compressor efficiency and mass flow rates are reviewed.•Experiments are conducted with an ACM centrifugal compressor used in air cycle refrigeration.•Available models are evaluated against experimental data from three data sources.•Accurate empirical models for refrigeration centrifugal compressors need to be developed.•Model performances and ranking vary with compressors.
