Turbochargers and Optimized Engine Systems to be Concepts NREC Focus at SAE 2011 World Congress

Share Article

Company underscores importance of matching turbochargers to engine systems in meeting performance requirements. Plus, pumps and fans of all types should be optimized for performance, efficiency and quiet operation.

Concepts NREC has worked with every major engine, auto, and turbocharger company in the industry.

To push engine technology, you have to optimize it and include the turbocharger in the main design,” says Fred Becker, Director of Engineering Sales for Concepts NREC. "Concepts NREC is the company you need to innovate engine designs.

Concepts NREC, a world leader in turbomachinery-focused design and development, CAE/CAM software and manufacturing services, today announces that it will exhibit in booth 1112 at the SAE 2011 World Congress, April 12-14 at Cobo Center in Detroit, Mich. Company representatives will discuss the importance of matching the turbocharger to the engine for optimized efficiency and meeting government regulations, compliance requirements, and improved innovation goals. Automotive engineers, designers, and manufacturers will benefit from Concepts NREC’s decades of turbomachinery expertise compiled while working with every major engine, auto, and turbocharger company in the industry.

“To push engine technology, you have to optimize it and include the turbocharger in the main design,” says Fred Becker, Director of Engineering Sales for Concepts NREC. “Our experiences in working with every major engine, auto, and turbocharger company out there has made us a world-class company in our own right. Concepts NREC is the company you need to innovate engine designs.”

Concepts NREC will discuss innovative turbocharger concepts while demonstrating its TurboMatch™ and TurboOPT II™ software modules. TurboMatch software enables users to develop turbocharger designs for specific engine systems. TurboOPT II software offers a multilevel approach to performing sequential, coupled, nested, and combined optimization of turbocharger designs. Concepts NREC’s customers use the TurboMatch and TurboOPT II software as part of the Agile Engineering Design System®.

Optimizing Pumps & Fans
Concepts NREC’s Agile Engineering Design System also includes tools for designing pumps, fans, and blowers. During the SAE 2011 World Congress, company representatives will discuss the importance of optimizing pumps and fans for energy efficiency and noise reduction:

  • Pumps – Every engine has pumps. Concepts NREC will discuss high-performance yet cost-competitive pump design solutions.
  • Fans – Several automotive systems incorporate fans. Concepts NREC will discuss next-generation high efficiency, low noise fan solutions.

“There’s not one person out there who doesn’t recognize the noise issue inside the car when someone turns on the air conditioner (fan),” explains Becker. “It can be the loudest noise in the car, except the radio that you turn up to overcome the noise of the fan. When you make the fan an integrated component of the airflow system and not just an add-on accessory, you improve system efficiency and minimize noise.”
