Development of the "hybrid turbo," an electrically assisted turbocharger

Seiichi Ibaraki, Yukio Yamashita, Kunio Sumida, Hiroshi Ogita, Yasuaki Jinnai
If automotive engines are to achieve better environmental properties and drivability, they must be equipped with more advanced systems for operation control. Electrical operation systems are now being incorporated in engine designs for this purpose. The "hybrid turbo" is an electrically assisted turbocharger with a high-speed motor generator built in. When operating in the low-speed engine mode, the hybrid turbo can achieve better combustion, purer exhaust gas, improved torque response, and torque enhancements with motor assistance. In the high-speed engine mode, it can operate with very high efficiency by achieving regeneration of electric power in excess of the exhaust gas energy. For these reasons, the electrically assisted turbocharger is expected to be adopted as the turbocharger of the future. In recent engine tests, a new hybrid turbo developed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) has been proven to operate with improved engine torque and enhanced response compared to a conventional turbocharger. The effectiveness of this hybrid turbo has thus been confirmed.

Cummins unveils 5-liter diesel engine for light- and medium-duty commercial markets

Just a few weeks after announcing a partnership with Nissan to supply the automaker with 5-liter turbo diesel engines for the next-generation Titan pickup line, Cummins has unveiled the ISV5.0, a 5-liter diesel engine aimed at the light- and medium-duty commercial vehicle market.
The ISV5.0 marks the latest announcement from Cummins as the engine maker continues to branch out from its Class 8 heritage. "We've worked hard to understand what the market needs and wants," said Jeff Jones, Vice President of Cummins' North American engine business. "The recipe that we use in all the markets round the world we've applied here."
The ISV5.0 features Cummins' variable geometry turbocharger, Bosch high pressure common rail fueling system, two-stage filtration using Cummins Filtration's NanoNet media, cooled exhaust gas recirculation and Cummins Emission Solutions aftertreatment system with a diesel particulate filter and selective catalytic reduction technology.
"With the launch of the ISV5.0, the engine becomes part of a growing family of one of the most capable and broadest product offerings in the industry," says Dave Crompton, vice president and general manager of Cummins' engine business. "Many of our customers have asked for a Cummins alternative for gasoline or other small displacement automotive diesel engines. The ISV5.0 represents the next dimension in fuel economy and performance as Cummins continues to broaden our on-highway product line."
