Fundamental Concepts of Turbocharging Modern Engines Current Practices and Trends Web Seminar RePlay PD331858

Newly Released!

Turbocharging is an integral part of many internal combustion engine systems. While it has long been a key to diesel engine performance, turbocharging is increasingly seen as an enabler in meeting many of the efficiency and performance requirements of modern automotive gasoline engines.

This replay discusses the basic concepts of turbocharging and air flow management of four-stroke engines. It explores the fundamentals of turbocharging, system design features, performance measures, and matching and selection criteria. Topics include spark ignition and diesel engine systems, the impact of different applications. The course also covers the interaction between turbocharging and engine systems and the impact on performance, fuel economy, and emissions. Developments in turbocharging technology are also covered.

Objectives
