hey sam, it is not a simple compressor...it is a screw compressor with some modifications in the injection of oil. so i gotta design an existing one and add these modifications while running it. so it basically boils down to the part of compressor where in the gas comes into contact with the oil tht is injected to maintain lubrication between the lobes...thts my exact control volume. also any help with the mathematical formulations of it...????
