The world leading International Conference on Turbochargers and Turbocharging returns in 2020. It will address current and novel turbocharging system choices and components with a renewed emphasis to address the challenges posed by emission regulations and market trends.
CALL FOR PAPERS NOW OPEN:
There has never been a better time to get involved: the call for papers is now open, submit your abstract before 12 July 2019 to present your findings at next year's conference.
The conference will focus on the development of air management solutions and waste heat recovery ideas to support thermal propulsion systems leading to high thermal efficiency and low exhaust emissions. These can be in the form of internal combustion engines or other propulsion technologies (eg. Fuel cell) in both direct drive and hybridised configuration. It particularly focuses on turbochargers, superchargers, waste heat recovery turbines and related air managements components in both electrical and mechanical form.
- Future Legislation needs for thermal propulsion systems (Eu7, EUVII, RDE, US24, China VI b)
- Air management needs in future powertrains for passenger car and commercial vehicles (On and Off-Highway)
- Future concepts for marine propulsion and power generating sets.
- Impact of alternate fuels (e.g. CNG, 2nd Gen Bio fuels, synthetic fuels)
- Turbocharger systems and novel configurations
- Boosting solutions for conventional powertrains
- Demands for turbochargers in hybrid powertrains.
- Electric turbochargers, electric compressors and turbo-generators
- Waste heat recovery systems and electric turbo-compounding
- Boosting solutions for new engine concepts
- Energy, thermal management and control in hybrid systems
- Turbomachinery aerodynamic development
- New Compressors and Turbines
- Single and multi-stage turbocharger systems
- Component fatigue life, bearing design and rotor-dynamics
- Mechatronics, control, sensors and power electronics needs for Boosting
- Simulation techniques: 3D, 1D and 0D
- New testing and measurement methods
- Advanced manufacturing processes and the role of additive manufacturing
- Industry 4.0
