Global turbo compounding systems are used to increase the efficiency of the engines. These systems use a turbine to harness energy from exhaust gas in order to pump air into the engine so as to increase power output in diesel and gas engines. Turbo compounding systems thus help increase power output, improve fuel economy and reduce emissions. Power turbine can be linked with crankshaft by either mechanical or electrical methods. In electrical turbo compounding (ETC) systems, the turbine is connected to a generator where the mechanical energy is converted into electrical energy that can be stored in batteries and used to increase the engine’s output through a motor or power ancillaries. ETC systems can be further classified as serial turbo compounding, parallel turbo compounding, and electric assisted turbo compounding systems.
Turbo compounding systems are used in motorsport racing engines, heavy vehicle engines, aircraft engines, and gen sets (stationary generator sets). The gen sets are relatively novel application for such systems. Use of fossil fuels for power generation, especially in developing economies, is expected to continue for decades. The global need to reduce CO2 will propel the use of ETC systems in gen sets to provide cleaner and energy efficient solutions. The F1 racing engines are currently using these systems to help power the advanced energy recovery systems. The adoption of turbo compounding system technology in this application is increasing with the technology innovation in electric turbo compounding technology. The electric turbo compounding is estimated to enter into passenger cars and commercial vehicles in future. Hybrid autos are anticipated to easily adopt the technologies as they are equipped with battery and battery traction engine to store the recovered energy from the exhaust waste.
