    Controlled Power Technologies suggests that smoke emissions from turbo charged diesel engines subjected to heavy loads, like negotiating a stiff climb on a low gear, may be eliminated using a cheap electric supercharger.

    CPT is a start up company based in the United Kingdom which explores development of carbon dioxide-reducing solutions that can be used with today’s vehicles.

    At the moment, the company is marketing three basic products: VTES or Variable Torque Enhancement SystemControlled Power Technologies which is a supercharging system; TIGERS a generator system dependent on exhaust turbine; and SpeedStart12 which is a starter generator system.

    Excessive particulate emission is a major issue in the transport industry especially when tougher guidelines and legislations will be in placed by 2012. The supercharger from CTS aims to address the root of the problem by supplying more air to the engine during transient events which may require addition power and fuel. The sufficient air will prevent production of soot which is caused by inefficient combustion.

    The CPT supercharger will be able to supply instantaneously the needed air for an efficient combustion. The simple electric supercharger will be able to deliver better mass flow rate and torque response. VTES outperforms turbochargers that have the twin sequential architecture.

    The VTES is a Switched Reluctance mechanism that is cooled by air paired with electronics and radial compressor to deliver optimal air flow, efficiency, and pressure. It is primarily designed to make Diesel and Otto engines deliver more torque, decrease emission, and reduce carbon dioxide.
