An approximate method for the design of electrodynamic oscillating gas compressors is developed. A linear spring-damper load is used to approximate the gas load at a single design point. Equations are presented for the linear load and for the design of components. A scheme is developed for the determination of design trends, and the trends are discussed. The design method is applied to two existing designs, an experimental and a commercial electrodynamic compressor, as an independent check.
