NREC's TurboMatchô is a new software product that is designed
to fill the engineering design gap between engines and turbochargers. It is the
first commercially available software that allows advanced compressor and
turbine design as part of an overall engine system.
gives anyone responsible for the design, specification or building of
turbocharged engines an accurate, fast and easy-to-use tool for developing
products that meet tightening emissions standards and regulations. †For
example, in the Design mode, users can size the compressor and turbine to meet
the required engine size and boost pressure, and automatically match the power
and rotational speed of the two components. †
User benefits of TurboMatch include having the ability to:
a turbocharger to match a given engine.
new turbochargers with assurance of engine matching at every design stage.
change compressor and turbine sizes then predict the effect on the match.
make a preliminary optimization of the turbocharging system.
the effect of waste gates, variable geometry, exhaust gas recirculation (EGR)
and component losses on the match and performance.
These are the toys that inspired budding engineers to try out sublime designs, create miniature structures, and experiment with bizarre contraptions using sets that could be torn down and reconstructed over and over.
