Experimental and Numerical Investigation of Diesel Engine Turbocharger Bhavinkumar N Patel Mr Dattatraya Subhedar PG Student Assistant Professor Department of Mechanical Engineering Department of Mechanical Engineering Chandubhai S Patel Institute of Technology Chandubhai S Patel Institute of Technology Abstract This research work was carried out to investigate performance of turbocharger and parameters affecting performance of turbocharger. Experimental set up is developed to study the performance turbocharger at various temperature and pressure of exhaust gas of the engine. To study the effect of exit angle of turbine blade on turbocharger performance Workbench platform of Ansys CFX is used. Experimental results shows that as the engine load increases the speed of turbine shaft increases at certain level and after that it will remain…show more content…
This increased air intake allows more fuel to be injected into the cylinders and results in a more powerful combustion process. Turbocharging is efficient because it recycles engine exhausts, which are normally wasted in non-turbocharged engines. As combustion gases exit the engine cylinders, they are sent to the turbocharger. The turbine is connected to a shaft that then transmits the exhaust energy to power a compressor wheel. The compressor draws in and compresses air from outside the vehicle where it passes through an intercooler, which cools the air increasing its density. This dense cold air is then sent to the cylinders to produce a more powerful combustion, resulting in greater vehicle
