Turbocharger testing and research

Welcome to Imperial College London’s turbine testing and research facility. Our world class expertise in turbocharging and exhaust gas energy recovery can help your turbines run as efficiently as possible.

Using a unique high speed eddy current dynamometer designed and built here at Imperial, we are able to test turbines and produce maps over a much wider range of conditions than can be obtained when loading with a traditional compressor.

We provide steady and unsteady performance testing and also consulting services offering custom analysis such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation, and design.

Our wider research interests include turbogenerators and electrical superchargers, airflow and heat transfer in electrical machines and modelling of hybrid and electric vehicles.
