Goal

The module provides specific knowledge about the functionality and working principle of charging systems for combustion engines.

A successful completion of the module enables students to

  • classify different charging principles according to their specific characterisitcs
  • describe interdependencies between charging system and engine
  • perform fundamental design calculations for turbochargers
  • analyze thermodynamic characteristic maps of turbines and compressors and evaluate them with respect to engine requirements
  • identify relevant failure mechanisms and deduce lifetime predictions from these
Content
