Recently, a linear compressor has been actively developed to improve the energy efficiency of home appliances, such as refrigerators. Unlike a reciprocating compressor, the suction part of a linear compressor is periodically moving. Therefore, the suction valve and the muffler constituting the suction part are periodically moving. However, up to now, there has been no research into the characteristics of the sound propagation in a periodically moving acoustic system. Thus, in this study, characteristics of sound propagation in a periodically moving acoustic system were investigated for the first time. Among a variety of acoustic filters used in a suction muffler, the change in the orifice impedance has been observed because this change is considered to be easily affected by periodically moving. Due to difficulty in measuring the orifice impedance in a periodically moving acoustic system, the change in the orifice impedance was predicted from the change in the input impedance of the suction muffler that included orifice. The experiments were carried out while changing the diameter and the pattern of orifice as well as length of the duct. As a result of experiments, the impedance of periodically moving orifice was changed depending on diameter, pattern of orifice and frequency band. Therefore, if periodically moving orifice was used to design a suction muffler in linear compressor or acoustic system, the change in the orifice impedance should be taken into consideration.
