The Difference Between a Turbocharger and a Supercharger
When it comes to car engine terminology, a good understanding of parts and components will help to make better purchasing decisions. Oftentimes, the terms turbocharger and supercharger are interchangeably mentioned – but there’s a definite difference between these components.
Both turbochargers and superchargers compress the air going into the engine, thus providing added power (sometimes 50% more power). Indeed, a turbocharger can provide RPM speed that is 30 times faster than a conventional engine. Turbochargers are very effective in high altitudes.
Superchargers compress air and create a boost by forcing that air right into the engine. As such, a supercharger adds about 45% more horsepower, mainly because the increased airflow allows more fuel into the combustion process. Superchargers also do well in high altitude locations.
The Operating Principle and Advantages of Turbochargers
Power output in an engine is relative to the volume of fuel and air that combusts. A turbocharged engine compresses air, allowing a large volume of air into the combustion chamber, and resulting in more efficient fuel combustion. This increases power output and reduces exhaust emissions
Advantage of Turbochargers
Because of exhaust emission standards, car manufacturers design engines to meet environmental regulations, while offering a comfortable ride. Unlike a conventional engine, turbochargers offer lower fuel consumption and re-use some of the energy from exhaust gases (better efficiency).
Much Quicker Reaction Time
In a typical application, it’s common for a turbocharger upgrade to double your engine power. This results in much quicker reaction time when driving. Turbochargers are also known to affect power loss at high engine speeds (this is particularly advantageous in engines that are quite big).
Turbocharged engines perform much better in higher altitudes. In a conventional engine, low air pressure at high altitude compromises engine power. With a turbocharger, engine performance is improved because of the difference in air pressure between the engine and the atmosphere.
