- TL;DR Summary
- I have done some calculations to obtain power from the engine but don't think they are correct. Also need some help calculating torque at different rpms and air tank emptying time.

Hi, I posted a question a while ago which I have managed to do some more calculations for. I need a bit of help to see if they are correct. I am trying to obtain power and torque values at different rotational speeds of a single cylinder compressed air engine. The inlet pressure into the engine is a constant 9 bar and the air is discharged from the chamber as the piston reached BDC rather than a conventional cam valve design. My calculations below for power do no seem right compared to MATLAB and experimental results.

I have attached screenshot as it will not let me post equations into this.

I would like to get torque values at different rpms and also any formulas to calculate how quickly a air tank would empty at a specific rpm.

Much appreciate the help.
