Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/23/2013 -- Automotive turbochargers are forced induction systems which compress air entering into the engine by utilizing the heat energy of exhaust gases. These devices introduce greater volumes of air into the engine cylinder thus making available more air-fuel mixture in each cylinder during power stroke of an engine; which in-turn boosts its performance. A turbocharged engine offers many advantages such as increased power output, improved power to weight ratio and vehicle efficiency, and also helps in engine downsizing. Turbochargers can also be classified based on fuel types as gasoline and diesel turbocharger which are used for passenger cars and commercial vehicles.
Variable geometry technology preferred for turbocharged engines employed in passenger cars
The turbochargers use three basic technologies namely VGT, wastegate, and twin turbo. Turbocharger manufacturers have their own patented advancements in these three key technologies. Variable Geometry Turbochargers technology is widely adopted in passenger cars whereas Wastegate turbo is widely used in commercial vehicles.
