Turbo Discharging


Turbo-Discharging has been developed in Loughborough University’s engine powertrain research group, driven by energy systems specialist Dr Andrew Williams.  The engine powertrain research group is the largest in the country with 12 academic staff and ~35 researchers with expertise covering almost all aspects of engine powertrain technologies. The continued investment in infrastructure, hardware and support at Loughborough puts us in a strong position to deliver the full potential of Turbo-Discharging in collaboration with key industrial partners and suppliers.

Over the last four years, with the support of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) and the Royal Academy of Engineering, we have successfully taken Turbo-Discharging from a fundamentally new concept idea to a working demonstrator on a 4-cylinder automotive gasoline engine.  During this time our researchers have developed and validated simulation tools which are now being used to quantify the fuel saving and performance potential of the system more widely across the market.

We are working in partnership with Cleantech development specialists, AltEnergis, to commercialise Turbo-Discharging.
