Objectives
Abstract The project will develop a novel energy recovery and boosting system for internal combustion engines, leading to a step change in vehicle energy efficiency, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Aeristech s Full Electric Turbocharger Technology (FETT) is a mechanically decoupled turbochaqrger and comprises of 3 elements; (1) an electric turbine generator recovering exhaust heat energy, powering (2) an electric compressor to boost the engine on demand, through (3) a power management unit. Jaguar Land Rover Limited, Advanced Design Technology Limited, Bath University and Aeristech will match the FETT concept to JLR s Ingenium engine family, and the FETT development will be supported by an extensive simulation phase at system/engine level, as well as vehicle level for an optimised vehicle energy efficiency. This simulation, led by JLR and Bath University will provide Aeristech and ADT with a detailed FETT target specification. ADT will focus on the design of optimised turbomarchinery, for a decoupled turbine and compressor, whilst Aeristech will concentrate on the design of electric machines and power management device with best-in-class efficiencies.The project will develop a novel energy recovery and boosting system for internal combustion engines, leading to a step change in vehicle energy efficiency, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
