Adiabatic Turbocompound Engine Performance Prediction 780068

The contemporary turbocharged aftercooled diesel engine is providing the world with one of the most efficient and dependable powerplants known to mankind. An adiabatic turbocompound diesel engine is analyzed in this paper to demonstrate that the contemporary diesel cycle without a cooling system could be the beginning of a new era in continued diesel engine efficiency, reliability and durability. The problems with the diesel cooling system encountered in service are presented. The consequence of an adiabatic turbocompound engine without any cooling system is treated for engine performance.
