Abstract
With increasing challenges in both fuel consumption and emission, the turbochargers have played a very important role for gasoline engines. Turbochargers can increase engine power density, reduce physical dimensions and reduce engine weight. Most of the turbochargers have a rotor system including a centrifugal compressor and a turbo turbine. Centrifugal compressors is a turbomachine which increases the gas pressure with the help of a turbine. Centrifugal compressors dominate the turbocharger applications. Centrifugal compressor performances are very critical for turbocharger performance. Gasoline engines need compressor not only to have high efficiency at whole operating range but also have a wide operating range. This paper discussed a centrifugal compressor design for gasoline engine turbocharger. The modern compressor design process developed recently was used for this new compressor design. The performance of the new design was compared with original compressor in CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) analysis, gas stand test and engine test. It demonstrated that the newly developed compressor has better performance and also meet the engine operating needs from both numerical analysis and test. The new centrifugal compressor development is successful.
