AIRFLOW CONTROL SYSTEM IMPROVES TURBOCHARGER TRANSIENT RESPONSE

A frequently cited drawback of turbocharging, particularly in automotive applications, is the poor transient throttle response of the turbocharged engine relative to the naturally aspirated engine. The transient response of a turbocharged engine which is suddenly loaded from an initial part load state is limited by the rotational inertia of the turbocharger rotor. A simple control system has been developed which improves the transient performance by removing the compressor from the intake airflow when boost pressure is not required.
