Nowadays turbo charging is a key technology for further developments of internal combustion engines. The turbo charger compressor raises the pressure of the internal combustion engine. The power therefor is extracted from the exhaust gas by a turbine. This concept enhances fuel efficiency, reduces emissions and increases vehicle performance. Turbo charging can significantly reduce the power to weight ratio of an internal combustion engine.

At comparable power, a turbo charged engine is smaller and lighter than a naturally aspired engine. This effects fuel efficiency and is used to meet emission limits.

At the institute of gas turbines and aerospace propulsion, we support further developments of turbo chargers with numerical simulations and experiments. Therewith, findings and developments can be released, tested and validated easily. Investigations focus on the aerodynamic of compressors and turbines as well as the interaction with other components.
