Transforming Our Thinking: What in the World is a VDT?

A turbocharger is a device that is typically placed in the exhaust stream of a combustion engine. It consists of two impellers that are connected by a common shaft. The exhaust gas of the engine drives one impeller, which acts as an air motor. The connecting shaft turns the other impeller, which becomes an air pump/compressor. The inlet to the motor side of the turbocharger is from the engine exhaust. The inlet to the pump/compressor is open to atmosphere. The outlet of the motor side is directed to atmosphere while the outlet of the pump/compressor is directed to the engine air intake. The dense, oxygen rich air improves combustion and increases the efficiency of the engine.
