By: Michael Camber

There are several different ways to control an individual compressor to match output to demand. In single compressor installations, some are better at handling part-load conditions than others. Many newer compressors can be switched from one to the other via their on-board controller. Others (e.g. modulation, variable speed, and rotor length adjustment) require different mechanical and electric configurations. Below are simplified descriptions of the types in use today.
