Upgrade of a Turbocharger Speed Measurement Algorithm Based on Acoustic Emission
The present paper is about the rotational speed measurement of an automotive turbocharger, obtained starting from the analysis of acoustic emission produced by an engine, which have been acquired by a microphone placed under the vehicle hood. In the first part of the paper several upgrades to increase the overall performance of the speed extraction algorithm are presented and discussed, starting from the basic algorithm that has already demonstrated the methodology capability in a previous paper. In particular it has been considered a different signal sampling rate in order to extend the applicability of the methodology to a wider range of engines. Also a new processing procedure has been defined to increase the capability of the algorithm to tune on the frequency signal.
