Advanced Turbocharging and Downsizing
Berlin, 23/02/2012 – Advanced turbochargers face the challenge of limiting emissions while at the same time reducing costs – an effective way is the implementation of intelligent downsizing and new turbocharging concepts for modern combustion engines. Meet a range of OEMs at IQPC’s 4th International Congress on Advanced Downsizing & Turbocharging Concepts, 26 – 28 March, 2012 in Stuttgart, Germany.
The turbocharger is a highly complex product that is set to become widely used in gasoline engines. In order to limit emissions, but at the same time improve overall efficiency while reducing costs, designers of turbocharger are facing sophisticated challenges. This has meant that new charging and downsizing concepts are required. Find out at IQPC’s conference about future concepts for boosting small gasoline engines and the potential of two stage turbocharging, as well as turbocharging systems in HEVs.
Key topics include the following:
Future development of downsizing and turbocharging: research on extreme downsizing, two-stage turbocharging or variable inlet guide vanes
- New downsizing concepts for diesel engines, e.g. pressure wave chargers
- Turbocharger materials, such as high-performance thermoplastics
- New charging concepts, such as fully electric turbocharging or SuperTurbo
Chairman of the conference is Dr. Geoff Capon, Turbocharger Systems Specialist at Ford. Other OEM’s presenting are Hyundai, Volvo, Fiat and Lotus. Use the opportunity to interact directly with the turbocharging experts at the Workshop Day on Wednesday, March 28 2012 on topics such as
- Innovative turbocharging technologies (Nick Baines, Concepts NREC, UK)
- High performance materials for boosted engines
- New engine configurations enabled by a SuperTurbo (Ed VanDyne, VanDyne SuperTurbo Inc., USA)
- How much screw dose does a turbocharger need? (Eugen Perisutti, EJOT GmbH, Germany)
