TurboMatch software from Concepts NREC (conceptsnrec.com) bridges the gap between engines and turbochargers by allowing users to design and analyze turbochargers optimally matched to a specific engine system. The software consists of two modes: Design, wherein users can size the compressor and turbine to the required pressure ratios to match the power and rotational speed, and Analysis, where users can manipulate geometries and examine system performance as it interacts with the compressor and turbine maps. TurboMatch permits the design of turbines with waste gates, variable geometry turbines, intercoolers, and high- and low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) systems. The software replaces the trial-and-error design methods, condensing the design cycle from weeks to days.
