A higher degree of turbocharging commonly implies higher mechanical and thermal load and disadvantages in starting, low load operation and acceleration response. Possible improvements are discussed with a particular view to air-cooled engines. Making allowance for predetermined load limits, the influence of a decreased compression ratio on power and specific fuel consumption is shown as well as the effects of parameters like air/fuel ratio, charge air pressure and temperature. Methods are explained for heating the combustion air to improve the starting.
