• Supercharger in An automobile and supercharging of Engine

    Supercharger | Definition, Types, Supercharging of engine

    A supercharger is an air compressor that increases the pressure or density of air supplied to an internal combustion engine. This gives each intake cycle of the engine more oxygen. It lets the engine burn more fuel and do more work, thus increasing power. So if more air is forced & compressed into the cylinder, there will be an increase in the mean pressure & hence will produce more power. The power to the supercharger is provided  mechanically by the means of belt(usually), gear, shaft or chain connected to the engine’s crankshaft. Supercharging is a type of forced induction as it is an external application which forces or helps engine…

    Fuel injectors | Basics, Use, Construction, Working, Advantages and Disadvantages

    Fuel Injection or FI is the introduction of fuel in an Internal Combustion Engine by the means of an injector known as fuel injector. Fuel injectors are electronically controlled mechanical devices that are responsible for spraying (injecting) the right amount of fuel into the engine, so that a suitable air/fuel mixture is created for optimal combustion. Why Fuel Injection? Fuel Injection is used instead of carburetor because it offers: More power output. Better fuel efficiency. Reliability. Problem free cold starts. Better drive-ability and smooth engine operation. More benefits includes smoother and crisper throttle response ( during quick throttle transitions),  more accurate adjustment to account for extremes of ambient temperatures and changes…

    Turbocharger | Basics, Working, Parts and Turbocharging of Engine

    In this informative article on Turbochargers we will discuss about the function, working,  parts, advantages, disadvantages and finally the applications of a turbocharger. Starting with- Function of a Turbocharger A turbocharger (commonly known as turbo) is a device used in vehicles to force air into an internal combustion engine to improve the power output with same fuel. In other words, Turbocharger is a turbine driven forced induction which increases Internal Combustion engine’s efficiency and power output by forcing extra compressed air into the combustion chamber. It is a form of a supercharger except it doesn’t draw power from engine crankshaft. A turbocharger is basically a combination of a compressor and a…
