Downsizing & Turbocharging 2017
In order to keep up with the requirements of emission legislation even more advanced concepts of turbocharging are an important tool to meet the ambitious emission targets of Euro 7 and worldwide light vehicle driving test cycle in terms of HC reduction and hence raising the engines performance. Thus, spark ignition (SI) and compressor ignition (CI) engines are the core product for gaining more efficiency and economy through sophisticated engine technology such as downsizing and turbocharging.
Nowadays, downsizing technology requires a higher demand on the dynamic response. To keep up with this challenge smaller exhaust gas turbochargers, multi-stage boosting and variable geometry of turbines should help to assure a dynamic response. Also electrical energy supported by an additional electric charge is seen as an effective solution to make boost pressure temporarily available.
