TURBOCHARGING HIGH SPEED, HIGH OUTPUT DIESEL ENGINES 560197
In 1951, the Cummins Engine Company, Inc. conducted investigations concerning the application of turbochargers to our high speed diesel engines. Although several serious limitations of an operational nature were found to exist, the potential appeared to be very promising.
This present paper outlines and discusses the subsequent developments to remove or extend the limitations and summarizes the current status of our turbocharged high speed diesel engines. The achievements have resulted in our production release of a line of high speed turbocharged diesel engines which are today establishing an enviable record of performance and economy in highway operation.
