Aspirations in Colorado to Be a New Motor City

December 16, 2011 – The New York Times

In the far corner of the building was a Cummins diesel engine owned by VanDyne SuperTurbo™, a spinoff from Woodward Governor, a large Fort Collins-based energy management company. VanDyne pays to use the laboratory’s resources, including several students, to conduct durability and emissions testing on its SuperTurbo technology, a device that adds a two-way mechanical drive to a turbocharger.

In this wrinkle on conventional turbocharger design, the engine can drive the turbo directly, and the turbo can push power back into the engine through a direct mechanical link, a system known as turbocompounding. Testing suggests that the technology could offer fuel efficiency gains and carbon-dioxide-emission reductions of 30 percent, enabling automakers to use smaller engines.
