Unsteady Interaction Of Turbocharger Compressor With IC Engine

By Oliver S. Gilkes, Rakesh Mishra, John D. Fieldhouse and Vasu Rao


Growing global concern pertaining to climate change has meant\ud that engine development has become more focused on engine\ud emissions. A method of reducing the emissions of an internal\ud combustion (IC) engine is to use smaller engines but recover\ud power lost due to reduction in size by using a turbocharger or\ud supercharger.\ud To ensure that a turbocharger is appropriate for a given engine it\ud has to be matched correctly. This process is called turbocharger\ud matching. Turbocharger matching ensures that the compressor is\ud providing sufficient air to the engine over a wide range of operating\ud conditions.\ud Currently compressors are mapped by carrying out controlled\ud experiments which put limits on its applicability to real world\ud situations
