High Efficiency Turbo-Machinery

The SuperTurbo allows for additional flexibility in design of high efficiency turbine and compressor wheels, as inertia is not as important as for a normal turbocharger. The Supercharging capability of the SuperTurbo can overcome turbo-lag issues.

Clean, Efficient Diesel Engines

The SuperTurbo has direct engine efficiency benefits through Turbo-Compounding capabilities, as well as enabling engine down-speeding, down-sizing, and alternative engine cycles such as the Miller Cycle. Greater control over the charge entering the engine also decreases particulate and NOx emissions.



Space-Age Traction Drive

The heart of the SuperTurbo is a high-speed traction drive, utilizing technology originally developed by NASA. The traction drive enables power transfer to and from the turbo shaft, as well as direct speed control over the turbocharger. The traction drive technology is well adapted for the highly dynamic operation of the SuperTurbo.
