A New Concept on Very High Performance Mobile Power 831218

A turbocompound engine cycle turbocharged with very high pressure ratio up to 10 and equipped with a complementary combustor and a bypass duct for compressed air is proposed. This paper is to present computer predictions on the real working processes, the performance characteristics, the capability of power boosting, and the optimums of parameters for the proposed cycle. Computer prediction discovered that the proposed cycle gives surprising attractive performances for mobile power and that a power boosting as high as 200 - 300% will be attained at comparative better fuel consumption without significant increase in thermal and mechanical load of the engine.
