Real gas state equations comparative analysis for low-temperature calculations
Abstract. In this paper, various real gas state equations are considered and their comparative analysis is carried out. The following state equations are studied in the work: Benedict-Webb-Rubin modification equation, Ridlich-Kwong Real Gas equation, Peng-Robinson Real Gas equation, and the modified Ridlich-Kwong real gas state equations proposed by Barsuk S.D. We have made a direct comparison of these calculation methods with most accurate identification. In addition, the paper analyzes the equations features, with applicability limits definition of each state equations. For the chosen one, as the most universal and exact equation, the calculations were made for the liquid phase and the real gas two-phase state. Based on the data obtained, polynomials were developed for various parameters depending on the gas temperature, which can later be used to build various mathematical models. Our conclusions show main advantages of selected equation for real gases and the reasons for choosing it for modeling low-temperature heat and mass transfer processes.
