Updated Paper: Intake Air Management for Diesel Engines

Postby wam on Wed Jun 22, 2011 11:44 am

An updated version of the Intake Air Management for Diesel Engines Technology Guide paper is available for your reading pleasure. This is a top level paper that covers volumetric efficiency and the basics of pressure charging—including turbochargers, superchargers and systems with multiple compressors—as well as turbocompounding and an introduction to intake manifold design.

A copy of the previous version of the paper is still available, as it includes some information on turbocompounding and wave supercharging that has not yet been moved to updated papers.

In the coming weeks/months we are planning on updating the remaining Technology Guide material on intake air management—including papers on turbochargers and superchargers—and adding new papers on charge air temperature management and on swirl.

Happy Reading!

A crucial role in air intake management is the control of the compressed air temperature leaving the turbo on a diesel engine. This compressed air gets very hot, and the higher the temperature of the air the lower the oxygen content. Cooling the air increases the oxygen content within it which enables more oxygen rich air to the engine thus improving the combustion by allowing more fuel to be burned. This is an important part of air intake management as this allows a more consistent flow of air temperature allowing more consistent air-fuel ratio into the engine increasing reliability and maintaining safe levels. A shout out for the company that I work for who manufacture diesel engine charge air coolers, Vestas aircoil A/S in Denmark (www.vestas-aircoil.com)
