Abstract

An electrically assisted turbocharger was designed, built and tested by a consortium consisting of Caterpillar Inc., BorgWarner Turbo Systems, Imperial College London and Loughborough University. The Electric Turbocharger Assist (ETA) device was based on a BorgWarner BV63 variable turbine geometry (VTG™) turbocharger with a bearing housing that was extended to accommodate a switched reluctance (SR) electrical machine. The ETA device was evaluated over a range of steady state and transient engine conditions with the ETA providing electric assist or electric regeneration. The response of the single stage ETA turbocharger matched a production 2-stage turbocharger on the same engine.
