Validation of thermodynamic characteristics of reciprocating compressors for motor vehicles is performed on a test bench that allows measuring pressure in the cylinder of compressor depending on the angular position of the compressor crankshaft. This paper presents the characteristics of the test bench and the results of measuring compressor\'s indicator diagram. The measurement results are compared with simulation results and results from measurements on similar compressors made by other authors. Good relation between the results of measurements and the results of simulation and literature data are achieved.

Key words: test bench; reciprocating compressor; indicator diagram
