Aviation[ change change source ] During the First World War French engineer Auguste Rateau fitted turbochargers to Renault engines powering various French fighters with some success. The test was to show that the turbo could add the power airplanes lose at high altitude.
Other Emission Control Technologies Introduction Since the introduction of the first diesel emission standards in the s, and even more so after the introduction of the first particulate matter emission standard in 0.
The US limits shown reflect a common phase-in option of US emission standards. As a result of these standards, diesel engine emission levels decreased dramatically in the period from the late s to the early s.
Reductions of similar magnitude were achieved for emissions of nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbons. This spectacular clean-up of the diesel engine was achieved through engine design methods in conjunction with better fuels.
The US PM standard of 0. Similar sulfur levels were legislated in the EU, with a ppm S cap introduced in and a ppm S limit in Diesel emission reductions in this time period—up to and including the US standards—were achieved without relying on exhaust gas aftertreatment post-combustion technologies.
Only emission standards that took effect later forced the use of advanced aftertreatment devices such as diesel particulate filters and NOx reduction catalysts by setting extremely low emission limits.
It should be noted that a number of diesel engines in this transitional, pre-aftertreatment period used exhaust gas aftertreatment devices.
However, aftertreatment was typically not the critical technology used for compliance in these engines, especially for the most troublesome emissions of NOx and PM.
For example, many US mechanically controlled engines used diesel oxidation catalysts to support PM emission reduction. Electronically controlled diesel engines were able to meet the 0. As the mechanically controlled engines were phased out, so was the use of catalytic converters on highway trucks in the USA.
An important reason for introducing these catalysts was the required reduction of CO and HC emissions. The PM emission reduction and in some cases the lean NOx functionality provided by these catalysts was limited and cannot be considered prime strategies for meeting emission standards.
In some cases car manufacturers introduced aftertreatment voluntarily, to promote the clean image of the diesel engine or for other political reasons. The stringency of these regulations may be illustrated by the US PM limit of 0.
Meeting these standards generally requires a combination of integrated engine and aftertreatment strategies, the latter being enabled by ultra low sulfur ppm S diesel fuel. It should be emphasized that in-cylinder emission control continues to play a very important role in engines with aftertreatment.
Aftertreatment technologies come with an added cost. Furthermore, some of them involve fuel economy penalties, while others have servicing requirements, such as the need to replenish urea in engines using selective catalytic reduction SCR for NOx control, that may inconvenience vehicle users.
Through in-cylinder emission control methods, the required emission reductions may often be achieved at a lower cost. If aftertreatment is still necessary, cost savings may be possible on cleaner engines, for example by enabling smaller catalyst sizes.
Several manufacturers continue to develop ultra clean diesel combustion systems that can meet the most stringent emission standards without the use, or with only a limited use, of aftertreatment. The first CO2 emission standards have already emerged for light-duty vehicles, Figure 2 . Due to the large engine and vehicle sizes, passenger cars in North America historically had the highest CO2 emissions.
However, compared to other regions, the United States is expected to require the highest CO2 emission reductions starting from Fuel economy and GHG regulations are also being developed for heavy-duty engines. Hence, increased thermal efficiency while meeting near-zero emissions is now the focus in engine development.
Dashed lines indicate proposed regulations. New technologies, as well as improvements to existing technologies are required for the diesel engine to meet the emissions and engine efficiency challenges.
The diesel engine industry has implemented and is further investigating several approaches to achieve the NOx and PM emission reductions required by emission standards: In-cylinder and engine-based design changes Fuel and lubricant formulations that reduce engine-out emissions and are compatible with exhaust aftertreatment systems.This invention presents a solution for turbocharging single cylinder internal combustion engines by adding an air capacitor to the intake manifold of the engine.
During the exhaust stroke of the engine, the turbocharger is mechanically powered by the exhaust gases to compress fresh air.

A turbocharger, colloquially known as a turbo, is a turbine-driven forced induction device that increases an internal combustion engine's efficiency and power output by forcing extra compressed air into the combustion chamber.
This improvement over a naturally aspirated engine's power output is due to the fact that the compressor can force more air—and proportionately more fuel—into the.

Selecting the proper turbocharger for your engine involves many considerations. Not only are the facts about your specific engine necessary, but equally important is the intended use for that engine.
Internal Combustion Engines An internal-combustion engine is a heat engine that burns fuel and air inside a combustion chamber located within the engine proper. Simply stated, a heat engine is an engine that converts heat energy to mechanical energy.
