EFFECT OF TURBO CHARGING ON DIESEL ENGINE NOISE EMISSIONS AND PERFORMANCE

The overall effect of two methods of turbocharging a direct injection four stroke diesel engine in terms of performance, smoke, noise and gaseous emissions is described. It is shown that the effect of turbocharging is to produce a more socially acceptable engine. Matched turbocharging involving reduced compression ratios produces substantial emissions and combustion noise reductions (up to 16dB) at full load but can increase combustion noise levels considerably (8 dB) at light load. Before full advantage can be taken, methods of controlling the characteristics of turbochargers to maintain short ignition delays at all conditions are required, together with reductions in engine mechanical noise levels. /GMRL/
