Concepts NREC has worked with every major engine, auto, and turbocharger company in the industry. So, it no surprise that SAE 2011 World Congress will be its platform to discuss the increasing importance of matching turbochargers to engine designs in order for the technology to evolve to new levels.

For the record, this TorqueNews reporter already has an interview set up for April 13th.

Fact is, Concepts NREC (CN) is a world leader in turbomachinery-focused design and development, CAE/CAM software and manufacturing services.

Plus, it equally presents how pumps and fans of all types should be optimized for performance, efficiency and quiet operation.

Company representatives will discuss the importance of matching the turbocharger to the engine for optimized efficiency and meeting government regulations, compliance requirements, and improved innovation goals.

Automotive engineers, designers, and manufacturers will certainly benefit from Concepts NREC’s decades of turbomachinery expertise, compiled while working with every major engine, auto, and turbocharger company in the industry.

In addition to discussing innovative turbocharger concepts, Concepts NREC will demonstrate its TurboMatch™ and TurboOPT II™ software modules. TurboMatch software enables users to develop turbocharger designs for specific engine systems.

According to the news release, TurboOPT II software offers a multilevel approach to performing sequential, coupled, nested, and combined optimization of turbocharger designs. Concepts NREC’s customers use the TurboMatch and TurboOPT II software as part of the Agile Engineering Design System®.

“To push engine technology, you have to optimize it and include the turbocharger in the main design,” says Fred Becker, Director of Engineering Sales for Concepts NREC. “Our experiences in working with every major engine, auto, and turbocharger company out there has made us a world-class company in our own right. Concepts NREC is the company you need to innovate engine designs.”

Optimizing Pumps & Fans

Concepts NREC’s Agile Engineering Design System also includes tools for designing pumps, fans, and blowers. During the SAE 2011 World Congress, company representatives will discuss the importance of optimizing pumps and fans for energy efficiency and noise reduction:

Pumps – Every engine has pumps. Concepts NREC will discuss high-performance yet cost-competitive pump design solutions.

Fans – Several automotive systems incorporate fans. Concepts NREC will discuss next-generation high efficiency, low noise fan solutions.

“There’s not one person out there who doesn’t recognize the noise issue inside the car when someone turns on the air conditioner (fan),” explains Becker. “It can be the loudest noise in the car, except the radio that you turn up to overcome the noise of the fan. When you make the fan an integrated component of the airflow system and not just an add-on accessory, you improve system efficiency and minimize noise.”
