The variable geometry turbine allows significant flexibility over the pressure ratio across the turbine. In diesel engines, this flexibility can be used for improving low speed torque characteristics,reducing turbocharger lag and driving EGR flow.

Variable Turbine Geometry

The most common designs of variable geometry turbochargers include the pivoting vane design and the moving wall design.

VNT—Variable Nozzle Turbine (Honeywell/Garrett),

VTG—Variable Turbine Geometry (BorgWarner and ABB)

VG—Variable Geometry turbocharger (MHI)

VGS—Variable Geometry System turbocharger (IHI)

VTA—Variable Turbine Area (MAN Diesel & Turbo)astegate.

 

 

Variable-geometry turbochargers (VGTs), (also known as variable nozzle turbines/VNTs), are a family of turbochargers, usually designed to allow the effective aspect ratio (A:R) of the turbo to be altered as conditions change. This is done because optimum aspect ratio at low engine speeds is very different from that at high engine speeds. If the aspect ratio is too large, the turbo will fail to create boost at low speeds; if the aspect ratio is too small, the turbo will choke the engine at high speeds, leading to high exhaust manifold pressures, high pumping losses, and ultimately lower power output. By altering the geometry of the türbine (variable geometry türbine) housing to help the engine accelerates, the turbo's aspect ratio can be maintained at its optimum. Because of this, VGTs (Variable Geometry Turbochargers)  have a minimal amount of lag, have a low boost threshold, and are very efficient at higher engine speeds. VGTs  (Variable Geometry Turbochargers)  do not require a wVGT—Variable Geometry Turbocharger (Cummins/Holset),

The World-wide Harmonized Test Procedure for Light Duty Vehicles

The World-wide Harmonized Test Procedure for Light Duty Vehicles

In order to assess vehicle performances in terms of criteria compounds, CO2 emissions and fuel/energy consumption,laboratory tests are mainly carried out. During these tests a vehicle is driven on a chassis dynamometer (which simulates the resistances the vehicle encounters during its motion) to follow a predefined test-cycle. In addition, all the conditions to run a test must strictly adhere to…

Solar Panel Orientation and Positioning

Solar Panel Orientation and Positioning

Solar power offers many advantages in the generation of electricity. It has zero raw fuel costs, unlimited supply and no environmental issues such as transport, storage, or pollution. Solar power is available everywhere, even on the moon. But to get the most out of a solar panel or solar array, it has to be pointed or “orientated” directly at the…

What Is The Google Panda Update?

Google’s Panda Update is a search filter introduced in February 2011 meant to stop sites with poor quality content from working their way into Google’s top search results. Panda is updated from time-to-time. When this happens, sites previously hit may escape, if they’ve made the right changes. Panda may also catch sites that escaped before. A refresh also means “false…
