Turbo-compound engine: The “cooler” turbocharger

A turbo-compound engine uses the exhaust gases through a downstream turbine. This can be installed in addition to a turbocharger. While the first exhaust gas turbocharger provides more boost pressure in the combustion chamber due to the exhaust gas energy and thus higher engine power, the second turbocharger converts the remaining energy into movement power.

Turbocharger: How Exhaust Gases Increase Engine Power

A turbocharger (also exhaust gas turbocharger) uses the energy that is lost by the exhaust gas of a reciprocating engine, profitable for driving the cylinder. It compresses the combustion air supplied to the engine, providing more torque and an increase in engine power. In a normal reciprocating engine, the amount of air needed for combustion […]
