SIMULATION AND IMPLEMENTATION OF TURBOCHARGING A 600CC ENGINE FOR FORMULA SAE
Farrugia M., Grech N., Chircop M., Azzopardi J.P.
pages 184 - 187, full text

The aim of this work was to analyze turbocharging for a Kawasaki 600cc motorcycle engine using Ricardo WAVE® and the implementation of the turbocharger based on the findings of the engine simulations. The simulations showed that for the purposes of a FSAE® car, the Kawasaki 600cc engine should be equipped with the Pulse System Turbocharging (PST) rather than Constant Pressure Turbocharging (CPT). The turbocharger simulated and used was a Honeywell GT15V variable geometry unit. The optimum compression ratio found for the PST setup was 7. Implementation on the Kawasaki engine was done by placing a decompression plate between the cylinder block and crankcase. Experiments were also conducted on alternative cylinder head gasket designs. The engine was tested on a waterbrake dynamometer and using a programmable ECU. The turbocharger vane mechanism showed to highly effect the engine response and turbocharger spool up time. A cam sensor was integrated into the engine to run the electronic engine control in fully sequential mode. A charge air cooler was implemented to provide consistent air temperature even in the boosted operation during dynamometer testing.
