E-Turbo technology is becoming much more feasible and practical to use across many different applications and purposes. An e-turbo is a turbocharger that is propelled by both exhaust gas, like a traditional turbo, and electric power to spin the turbines and create positive air pressure (boost). Using this technology allows for an increase in fuel economy up to 10% which is extremely beneficial as gasoline prices continue to rise. There are many e-turbos on the market now; however, Bosch e-TURBO Technology claims their technology will be the next-generation innovation in e-turbo design.
E-Turbo technology is becoming much more feasible and practical to use across many different applications and purposes. An E-turbo is a turbocharger that is propelled by both exhaust gas, like a traditional turbo, and electric power to spin the turbines and create positive air pressure (boost). The electric power is fed to two motors capable of running at speeds of 200,000 rpm, at extreme temperatures of 1,000 °C (1,800 °F) or higher. The motors, instead of using electricity from a battery, use electricity generated by the engine itself.
This technology is currently being developed for turbocharged engines on all levels—producing as little as 50 horsepower and as much as five million. An e-turbo system can be used with gasoline, diesel, or natural gas engines. In electric form it can be used on isolated grids, renewable energy sources, or batteries to solve the problem of grid stability.
One e-turbo is capable of running on traditional fossil fuel or natural gas for high levels of power production. On the other hand, it can use alternate power sources like renewables to supplement E-turbo’s electric capabilities by powering one e-turbo or both e-turbos during acceleration and when the internal combustion engine is stopped. This would be very beneficial in urban traffic where stops and starts are common.
Since e-turbo systems use secondary power sources to spin the turbochargers, it will reduce fuel consumption in vehicles by at least 20%. It can also increase a vehicle’s horsepower in the electric form to 300 horsepower.
What makes Bosch e-Turbo Technology unique?
Bosch e-TURBO uses two turbine wheels: exclusively powered by exhaust gas and an electric unit.
The e-turbo design is very compact, saving space in the engine compartment while offering the E-turbo’s efficiency compared to traditional e-turbos that are not as small or efficient.
None of the parts required for Bosch e-TURBO Technology need maintenance after initial installation because it uses an electronic wastegate control instead of a vacuum diaphragm which is commonly used on vehicle e-turbos. The use of this technology will reduce emissions and increase fuel economy up to 10%.
Only three main components make up the e-turbo system: compressor housing, turbine housing, and wastegate housing. With these few components, less unspent energy will be released into the environment and the e-turbo will provide better fuel economy.
Currently, it is most commonly found on larger vehicles such as trucks and SUVs; however, e-turbo technology will soon be adapted to smaller vehicles like sedans and hatchbacks that typically use e-turbos with an external design. Bosch e-TURBO Technology plans to increase the production of e-turbos for cars starting in 2021.
E-turbo technology is a great advancement in e-turbos. The e-turbo will be beneficial to all types of cars and will increase fuel economy for road users while reducing emissions.
How does E turbo work?
An e-turbo is a turbocharger that uses an electric motor in combination with traditional exhaust gases to power the turbo. The e-turbo allows for increased torque at much lower RPMs which saves fuel, increases performance, and reduces emissions. To start, e-turbos have two turbine wheels: one powered by exhaust gas and one powered by electricity from an electric motor.
The e-motor provides a low-speed boost while the engine-driven turbine provides top-end power when needed. At higher speeds when there isn’t enough energy from the E-turbo’s exhaust gas, the e-motor begins to provide all of the turbo’s energy since it can supply well over 100 kW of electrical power aiding in a faster spool up and increased torque and power throughout the engine’s RPM range.
The e-turbo system has significantly fewer components than a typical e-turbo because it doesn’t require any type of maintenance. Since e-turbos don’t rely on complex mechanical wastegates, they will be cheaper to produce and install. E-turbo technology reduces emissions and increases fuel economy up to 10%. The e-turbo unit is very small in size which saves space in the engine compartment while still providing high performance.
Eurotech eTurbo systems are currently manufactured for larger vehicles such as trucks and SUV’s; however, eTurboTech plans to expand the use of eTurbo systems for cars like sedans and hatchbacks within the next few years. E Turbo Tech systems provide a better alternative to E Turbos that rely on an external design because eTurboTech E Turbos are more compact and have fewer components which will reduce emissions and increase fuel economy.
What causes turbo failure?
Mechanical failure can be caused by age, debris in the oil or gas flow, poor lubrication, damage from detonation, and lack of boost pressure.
What are E-turbo technology benefits?
The e-turbo system has few components which reduce e pollution and increase fuel economy up to 10%. The e-turbo will also reduce maintenance costs compared to traditional e-turbos because the eTurbo does not use a complex mechanical wastegate.
E Turbo systems are currently manufactured for larger vehicles such as trucks and SUV’s; however, turbo system plans to expand eTurbo technology for cars like sedans and hatchbacks within the next few years. This technology will increase torque at much lower RPMs which will save fuel, increase performance and reduce emissions.
The e-turbo technology will be beneficial to all types of cars because it will increase fuel economy for road users while reducing emissions. It is currently most common on larger vehicles such as trucks and SUVs but eTurboTech plans to increase eTurbo production starting in 2021 for cars.
What causes e-turbo system failure?
E-turbos are highly efficient components that are made of high-grade materials that provide long life expectancy with little maintenance required compared to traditional e-turbos. The only e-turbo maintenance would consist of replacing the battery pack every few years. Defective e turbos would have issues with its electric motor or controller unit.
All e-turbo systems are tested at eTurboTech manufacturing facilities before being shipped to the customer so eTurbo system failures are extremely rare. If e-turbo unit failure were to occur, e-turbos would be covered under warranty by eTurboTech because all E Turbo systems are built with quality components.
How does E turbo increase performance?
E Turbo systems provide better performance than traditional E turbo’s because they have fewer components, therefore, less waste heat which increases efficiency and reduces emissions. The E Turbo also has a small size which allows manufacturers to either fit more equipment into the engine compartment or reduce weight for fuel economy benefits. Eurotech E Turbo complete will increase torque at much lower RPMs which will save fuel, increase performance and reduce emissions.
Are electric turbos better?
Electric e turbo technology is not without its own unique set of challenges. Electric e turbos rely on electric motors to spin the turbines, but the generation of power for these components can be difficult because there are limitations with regenerative braking systems and recharging batteries while the e-turbo unit automatically turns off when vehicle brakes are applied. E turbo tech plans to increase eTurbo production starting in 2021 for cars which will reduce emissions and increase fuel economy up to 10%.
Do electric turbos have lag?
Electric e turbo systems have minimal lag because the e-turbos are small and compact with fewer components which will reduce emissions and increase fuel economy up to 10%. The E-Turbo system consists of 2 electric motors, an e motor that is used to provide power for the e-turbo component. All e-turbo systems are tested at eTurboTech manufacturing facilities before being shipped to the customer so eTurbo system failures are extremely rare.
