What is isothermal?

An isothermal process is a change of a system, in which the temperature remains constant: ΔT = 0.   Isothermal compression is by definition the most energy efficient compression process.  Prior to Carnot’s technology, the Taylor Compressor was the only isothermal compression system in operation.
