    The history of the turbocharger:

    Observing some basic rules of the gaseous dynamic, Dr. Alfred J. Buchi developed in 1905 in Switzerland the first studies about the turbocharger. Between 1909 and 1914 the first engines equipped with turbochargers appeared in the world. There are some records that indicate that in 1910, in a car race held in the state of Florida the winner was a 6 cylinders passenger car with an engine equipped with a supercharger. But the studies of Dr. Alfred J. Buchi were considered very advanced for the times. Because of this, they remained dormant for approximately ten years. His research was resumed and remade because there were many problems to be solved. The objective was to make the production of turbochargers to be moved into an economy of scale. This happened first in Europe and then in the United States. During the II World War, General Electric developed turbochargers to be applied on military airplanes given the system the relevant status resource for war aviation.

    Today the turbochargers are used in automobiles, trucks, buses, agriculture equipments, water vessels and airplanes besides many others applications. We may basically say that an engine is supercharged when, via the use of a turbocharger, utilizes the pressure of the exhaust gases to elevate the pressure of the intake system of the engine. This resource provides better use of the energy because the pressure of the exhaust gases depends on the rotation of the engine which in a natural suction engine, supposedly, would be ignored.



    What is a turbocharger?
    The turbocharger is an equipment that increases the torque and the power of the engine through the step up of the mixture of air/fuel providing the assembly of smaller and more powerful engines. Due to the reuse of the gases expelled by the engine to move the turbine wheel and consequently the compressor wheel. The air is admitted and sent to the cylinders under pressure providing a better combustion of the fuel, which diminishes the emission of pollutants, improves the handling and gives an exceptional performance to the engine. The turbocharger is made of a rotating turbine and one air compressor which are placed on opposite sides of one single shaft. The compressor and turbine wheel are encompassed by housings called compressor housing and turbine housing, which role is to direct the flow of gases through the blades of the wheels. The bearing housing sustains the shaft through floating bearings and oil galleries inside the bearing housing carry the lubricant oil to the thrust and journal bearings.



    How does a turbocharger work?
    The principle of turbocharging is basically to appropriate the energy contained in the exhaust gases, then using them to compress the air that is going to be admitted by the engine. The final result of all this is that an engine with a turbocharger has its power increased between 30 to 200% (depending on the used pressure), which is bigger than an atmospheric engine with the same displacement. When the turbocharger is functioning the gases from the engine are directed, through the exhaust manifold into the turbine housing. These gases holding energy in form of pressure, temperature and speed cause the rotation of the turbine wheel and, consequently, of the compressor wheel. With this rotation the atmospheric air (which must be previously filtered) is aspirated and after that is compressed by the compressor wheel, from where it goes to the cylinders of the engine directed by the intake manifold. Because of the availability of a bigger pressure at the intake, the cylinders will not suffer any loss of energy in the entry cycle. When there is a bigger mass of air at the entry point of the cylinders, it is possible to burn a larger quantity of fuel, besides being able to obtain the full combustion of the mixture. Allying these three characteristics the final result obtained is a significant increase of power and torque of the engine and the reduction both of pollutants emission and fuel consumption.


    Advantages of a turbocharger:
    Nowadays, with the new pollutant emission laws for engines of the diesel cycle it would be impossible to reach the established goals without the use of a turbocharger, because – besides providing more power – it also promotes an expressive reduction of fuel consumption. Another advantage of the turbocharger is its excellent cost-benefit when compared with a conventional application. When we are talking about cost-benefit the meaning is how much is spent to reach an appointed specific power (this is the relation between power/displacement) for a given engine. For example: to reach a power level between 208/300 HP in a 2 liters engine, the turbocharger will present half of the cost to reach the same power when compared with an aspirated engine. Besides that, a turbocharger engine at this level would have all the conditions to be used on passengers cars without causing major disruptions (above certain levels of specific power only with the use of a turbocharger).
