What is Turbo Compounding? turbo compounding is using a turbine to
extract energy from the engine Exhaust, then directing it back to the
crankshaft thru gears or another power transfer method. It can increase the
overall effciency of an engine by reovering some of the wasted Exhaust heat.
How the Briggs Turbo Compounded Engine Works
A brief description of how the turbo
compounded briggs is supposed to operate. Due to efficiency problems with
the homemade turbine, housing and the power transfer friction drive, it
doesn't work the way it should. However, from what I have read, most
companies especially in the 1950s era had serious problems developing turbo-compounded engines also! Thus, I half
expected I would have compounded problems with this project :)
Nonetheless, it was an interesting project to design and build on a
shoestring budget, hope you found my Exhaust valve turbine an interesting design.
