Turbocharging & Supercharging

Calnetix Technologies’ electric turbocharger systems with Magnaforce™ motor generator technology will help you get more power and performance from your engine at any operating condition with less fuel and emissions. Key benefits of Calnetix’s electric turbo systems include:

  • Optimal air/fuel ratio under any given engine condition for enhanced performance
  • Engine down-sizing technology for same power output
  • Electric power production from waste heat/pressure
  • No turbo-lag
  • Increased fuel economy
  • Reduced emissions
  • Compact, power dense footprint minimizes space required for motor generator systems
  • Low cost integration
  • Rapid payback

From one to 1,000 HP, Calnetix has numerous electric turbo systems in operation today in applications ranging from motorsports to marine transportation.

Turbocharger Applications

Calnetix Technologies’ electric turbocharger or electric turbo systems enable the turbocharger to perform independently of the engine exhaust conditions. This means the compressor performance is decoupled from the exhaust turbine performance, and can therefore, provide the necessary air/fuel ratio for optimum engine performance under all load, speed, start/stop and ramp up conditions.

Turbocharger Motor Generator Assist - Also known as e-assist, turbo assist or turbo-generator. Directly coupled to the turbo shaft, the motor accelerates the turbo to maximum speed in a fraction of a second at startup and low-speed operation to create the necessary boost to optimize engine performance. When the turbocharger is at steady-state operation, the same motor can be used in generator mode to produce electrical power from the excess exhaust pressure. This energy can be used to run ancillary systems or charge vehicle batteries.

Supercharger Applications

Centrifugal Supercharger Motor - Also known as e-booster, e-charger or electric blower. Drives the compressor of an independent supercharger to create steady boost (and power) mostly during startup, transients and low-speed operation. The motor can be turned on and off as needed.

Compounder Applications

Turbocompounder Generator - Utilizes the waste energy exhaust stream downstream of the turbocharger, in most cases, to produce electric power via a standalone turbine generator configuration. The additional power produced is approximately 7 to 8 percent of the engine capacity.
