Reciprocating compressors are widely used in many industrial applications. One of the major influential component in deciding the performance of a compressor is reed valves. Reed valves are self actuating valves functioning due to differential pressure on either side of it. Reed valve dynamics is a complex study due to the various nonlinearies involved in it. An attempt is made to brief the various models developed over the years which helps to understand the behavior of reed valves and its interaction with working fluid in the larger purview of developing a global compressor simulation model. The necessary conditions involved in are discussed in keeping reed valve as a reference.
