Photographs and papers are now available from the 6th International Conference on Pumps and Fans with Compressors and Wind Turbines. At the event last year, Aeristech representatives presented a paper jointly with Imperial College and Tsinghua University in Beijing. Bryn Richards, Aeristech CEO, is pictured second row from the back alongside the other attendees.
Our presentation focussed on designing a novel compressor for electrically assisted boost in a 2.0L petrol engine. In addition to the designing process, we discussed performance analysis and the advantages of an electrically assisted booster with a centrifugal compressor over a displacement supercharger. IOP Science published the Centrifugal Compressor Design for Electrically Assisted Boost paper, as Volume 52, 2013 in their conference series: Materials Science and Engineering.
