The current emission legislations and environmental trends for reducing CO2 and fuel consumption are the major market forces in the transport (land and marine) and industry sectors. In these market sectors the internal combustion engine is the key product where downsizing is the driver for development for both spark ignition (SI) and compression ignition (CI) engines in the passenger car and commercial vehicle applications.
The more stringent future market forces and environmental considerations mean more stringent engine downsizing, thus, novel systems are required to provide boosting solutions including hybrid, electric-motor and exhaust waste energy recovery systems for high efficiency, response, reliability, durability and compactness etc.
For large engines the big challenge is to enhance the high specific power and efficiency whilst reducing emission levels (NOx and SOx) with variable quality fuels. This will require turbocharging systems for very high boost pressure, efficiency and a high degree of system flexibility.
This international conference follows on from the highly successful and prestigious previous conferences in this series held regularly since 1978, last held in May 2010 in London. The conference will cover all current and novel aspects of turbocharging systems design for boosting solutions for engine downsizing.
The conference will focus on the application of turbocharger and other pressure charging devices to SI and CI engines in the passenger car and commercial vehicles. Novel boosting solutions for diesel engines operating in the industrial and marine market sectors are also within the scope.
Imperial College London, in association with IMechE, will be running a complementary workshop on engine downsizing and turbocharging on the 14 May. A discounted registration fee is available for delegates attending both the workshop and the conference, click on 'prices' for further information.
