A singular perturbation analysis of speed controlled reciprocating compressors is presented. For weakly perturbed systems, analytical solutions for the steady-state and transient response are given. For strongly perturbed systems numerical results in both time and frequency domains are presented. The analytical solutions are useful in calculating reaction forces and torques applied on inertially stabilized platforms, in designing feed forward compensators and in simplifying parameter identification procedures. Furthermore, they clearly exhibit the dependence of response to system parameters.
