PROBLEMS IN MATCHING TURBOCHARGERS TO HIGH SPEED DIESEL ENGINES

The problem of matching turbochargers to a given diesel engine may best be considered as a mutual development program requiring the efforts of both the engine manufacturer and the turbocharger manufacturer. From given engine data and expected engine performance levels, the turbocharger manufacturer can select a turbocharger approximately suited for the particular problem. The allowable ratio of naturally aspirated to turbocharged power is dependent on several factors some of which are mechanical limitations of the engine, allowable peak firing pressures and type of combustion chamber. Often times this determination must be based on experimental engine running which includes variation of valve and injection timing as well as changes of injector pumps and nozzles.

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.
