    • 4 Pages

     Project Summary • A turbocharger, turbo, is a turbine-driven forced induction device that increases an internal combustion engine's efficiency and power output by forcing extra air into the combustion chamber. • It was invented Alferd Buchi in 1885. • A turbocharger, turbo, is a turbine-driven forced induction device that increases an internal combustion engine's efficiency and power output by forcing extra air into the combustion chamber. • Turbochargers are commonly used in passenger cars to obtain greater power output from a given engine size. The compact nature of a turbocharger means it is often a more space-efficient solution for increasing power output than increasing engine displacement. As an example, the turbo Porsche 944's acceleration…

    most common ways forced induction is achieved is with either a turbocharger or a supercharger system. Turbochargers have become the standard of forced induction in production cars. That is because turbochargers are more efficient, have a higher peak power band and produces less strain on your engine. Turbochargers are more efficient than superchargers because of the way it compresses air. Superchargers are a belt driven turbine so they use the engine’s crankshaft to compress the air. This…

    To identify the preferred rotation direction, a blower performance analysis is needed. A blower is usually an enclosed multiblade rotor that compresses air to a higher discharge pressure. Blower is also known as fan, but, traditionally, blowers do not discharge air at low pressure as some fans do. Figure 1.6 – CENTRIFUGAL BLOWER Dryers use centrifugal blower, where air is radially discharged from the impeller, (or fan wheel), so turns 90° from its inlet to its outlet (Figure 1.6). Air…
