In order to control both NOx and particulate emissions accurately, the amount of recirculated exhaust gas and air has to be precisely metered into the engine under all operating conditions.
A significant difference between a turbocharged diesel engine and a traditional naturally aspirated gasoline engine is the air entering a diesel engine is compressed before the fuel is injected. This is where the turbocharger is critical to the power output and efficiency of the diesel engine.
The Holset VGT™ from Cummins Turbo Technologies pioneered Variable Geometry (VG) technology for the commercial vehicle market in 1998. Featuring a patented sliding nozzle ring, the Holset VGT offers a wide flow range that allows for higher boost pressures at low engine speeds. VG technology provides the most fuel-efficient means of driving short-route Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR), which is used to reduce NOx levels.
A Holset power turbine works hand-in-hand with the Holset turbocharger by driving power back through the crankshaft and extracting energy from the exhaust stream: this is known as a turbocompound system. Both radial and axial power turbines are available for a variety of heavy-duty applications.
