13th International Conference on Turbochargers and Turbocharging
16–17 May 2018  ·  London, United Kingdom

The Institution’s International Conference on Turbochargers and Turbocharging returns on 16-17 May 2018 to provide a unique opportunity to showcase the latest turbocharging system designs and boosting solutions.

 Focusing on core topics including engine downsizing, engine emissions, fuel economy, power electronics and high speed motors reflects the vital challenges facing those involved in the design, development and testing of turbochargers and turbocharging systems. This technical engineering conference addresses new technologies and procedures to improve overall engine reliability, durability and compactness whilst meeting current emission legislation.

 Key topics include:

  • Downsizing, down-speeding and e-boosting concepts
  • Implications of current legislation (Euro 7 and Worldwide Light Vehicle Driving Test Cycle)
  • Engine emission, fuel consumption and CO2 reduction under real driving conditions
  • Single, two-stage, supercharged systems and exhaust gas recirculation
  • Improved fatigue life, bearing design and rotodynamics
  • Novel testing methods
  • Advanced simulation and digital prototyping
  • Transient response and altitude performance interaction with hybrid and e-boosting systems
  • Applications of hybrid and exhaust waste energy recovery systems
  • Alternative powertrains and fuel cells turbo blower
  • Aerodynamics of compressors and turbines
  • Control, sensors and software
  • Power electronics and power storage
  • High speed motors
  • Advanced fuels for engines and applications of air managements systems
