If automotive engines are to achieve better environmental properties and drivability, they must be equipped with more advanced systems for operation control. Electrical operation systems are now being incorporated in engine designs for this purpose. The "hybrid turbo" is an electrically assisted turbocharger with a high-speed motor generator built in. When operating in the low-speed engine mode, the hybrid turbo can achieve better combustion, purer exhaust gas, improved torque response, and…
