Internal combustion engine supercharging: turbocharger vs. pressure wave compressor. Performance comparison

Atanasiu George / Anghel Chiru
Published Online: 2014-06-27 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2478/s13531-013-0133-6


This paper aims on comparison between a turbocharged engine and a pressure wave charged engine. The comparison was accomplished using the engine simulation software AVL Boost, version 2010. The grahps were extracted using AVL Impress, version 2010. The performance increase is limited by the mechanical side of the simulated engine.
