An Electrically Assisted Turbocharger System for Formula Student

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation


An experimental electrically boosted turbocharger system has been developed for a small motorcycle engine intended for use in Formula Student competitions. The system was developed through the extensive use of modelling using Ricardo Wave software. Examples of the model are shown, along with a description of how the model was used to overcome design issues such as turbo lag and torque levelling. These show a significant improvement in engine torque and increased driveability.
