Improved Turbocharger Unit with Significantly Reduced Surge Limit Improved Turbocharger Unit with Significantly Reduced Surge Limit Queen's University Belfast
Researchers at QUB have invented a novel design of turbocharger which typically lowers a turbocharger surge limit by 41%– enabling an engine to deliver high torque at lower engine speeds. The design uses a patent pending geometric feature at the inlet to generate helpful swirl from a recirculating flow and a variable position valve to deliver the swirl just when needed. more >>
