Concepts in Turbocharging for Improved Efficiency and Emissions Reduction, the new book published by SAE International, explores the many ways that turbocharging will deliver concrete results in meeting the new realities of sustainable, green transportation. This collection of focused technical papers, selected by Mehrdad Zangeneh, Ph.D., a professor of thermo-fluids at University College in London, provides an assessment of several novel designs intended to improve fuel consumption and cap emissions while maintaining torque at all speeds. The 92-page softbound book is divided into four sections, each addressing the most cutting-edge technologies on the market today: two-stage turbocharging; variable geometry compressors; unconventional compressor configurations; and electrically assisted turbocharging.
