A geometric model and a mathematical model of a PP-type single screw rotor with planar gate rotor are derived from the gate-rotor generation process and gear theory. The teeth of gate rotor are planar. Based on the inverse envelope concept, the cutter required for machining the single screw rotor can be obtained using an inverse envelope of a one-parameter family of screw surfaces. The surface of the proposed screw rotor is analyzed using the developed mathematical model. A surface analysis, including stress analysis, of the design and manufacture of the screw compressor is presented. Finally, a numerical example demonstrates the geometric model of the PP-type single screw rotor with a compression ratio of 11:6.
