The future market forces and environmental considerations in the passenger car and commercial vehicle sector mean more stringent engine downsizing is far more prevalent. Therefore, 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.
The current emission legislations and environmental trends for reducing CO2 and fuel consumption are the major market forces in the land and marine transport industries. The internal combustion engine is the key product and downsizing, efficiency and economy are the driving forces for development for both spark ignition (SI) and compression ignition (CI) engines in both markets. Future market forces and environmental considerations for transportation, specifically in the passenger car, commercial vehicle and the marine sectors mean more stringent engine downsizing.
This international conference is the latest in the highly successful and prestigious series held regularly since 1978. These proceedings from the Institution’s highly successful and prestigious series address current and novel aspects of turbocharging systems design, boosting solutions for engine downsizing and improvements in efficiency, and present the latest research and development in this growing and innovative area.
- Focuses on boosting solutions including hybrid, electric-motor and exhaust waste energy recovery systems
- Explores the current need for high efficiency, reliability, durability and compactness in recovery systems
- Examines what new systems developments are underway
