Abstract: This paper reports a review study of different paper that was made to determine whether the mechanical action of a high-speed supercharger improves engine performance. Most passenger automobiles are overpowered and probably 80 per cent of such vehicles operate at less than 55 km.p.h. for 90 per cent of the time. Passenger-car requires from 12 to 15 hp., but the engine carried is capable of developing from 50 to 55 hp.
The result is that the car is operated for the greater part of the time at one-third to one- quarter throttle opening. Full power is needed only for accelerating and hillclimbing; during the remainder of the time the excess weight of the engine and other parts must be carried at a loss of efficiency. Those smaller engines can be used advantageously when equipped with superchargers, the supercharger being used only when excess power is required. Curves and a table are given to show the results of comparative tests with and without a supercharger.
Keywords: Boost pressure, internal combustion engine, Performance, supercharged engine, supercharger.
