Fundamental Concepts of Turbocharging Modern Engines Current Practices and Trends Web Seminar RePlay

Course code: PD331858

Turbocharging is an integral part of many internal combustion engine systems. While it has long been a key to diesel engine performance, turbocharging is increasingly seen as an enabler in meeting many of the efficiency and performance requirements of modern automotive gasoline engines.

This replay discusses the basic concepts of turbocharging and air flow management of four-stroke engines. It explores the fundamentals of turbocharging, system design features, performance measures, and matching and selection criteria. Topics include spark ignition and diesel engine systems, the impact of different applications. The course also covers the interaction between turbocharging and engine systems and the impact on performance, fuel economy, and emissions. Developments in turbocharging technology are also covered.


By participating in this course, you’ll be able to:

  • Identify the basics of how a turbocharger works, how to measure the appropriateness of a turbocharger, and how to select and match a turbocharger to the needs of your powertrain
  • Estimate the impact of turbocharging on performance and emissions
  • Recognize potential issues such as packaging, noise, driveability, reliability, and durability
  • List the latest developments in turbocharging technology and their attributes
