Turbocharging System Design of a Sequentially Turbocharged Diesel Engine by Means of a Wave Action Model 2007-01-1564

The present paper shows the use of a 1-D wave action model in the design process of a sequential parallel turbocharged engine. Even though little information was available at the beginning of the design process, a wave action model was used because of its capability of predicting the behaviour of the new engine. Main issues that were studied by means of simulations are: system architecture, turbochargers matching, prediction of the altitude effect on the turbocharging system, optimization of the transition between different modes, and control system design. The paper also summarises the limitations of the model, mainly concerning combustion process modelling, which were later identified once experimental information was available.
