    Yeah they said it has been tried in the past but caused a loss in economy, due to the alternator drive losses. But now with regen braking its OK.

    Bill, that is intderdesting. I saw it on RCgroups. It appears to an electric turbo/SC and alternator in one, but the compressor part is only electrically coupled rather than mechanically coupled. Looks like coolant hoses coming off it?

    I have received info on a 3.5kw motor that will do 50-60K rpm @ 12V. Wiring would be huge

    This idea has been taking off in the aftermarket and in production vehicles. Seems my favourite application as a compound boosting device with a real turbo to reduce lag is a common application. Someone needs to explain to them the Emotor is better connected to the crankshaft.

    wow, the wheel trim on the e-booster compressor is very low. (if video is to be believed)

    I guess its only used at low mass flows to bring the turbine up earlier and wouldn't be very useful during transient throttle at high rpms. so its more to lower the boost threshold rather than improve lag (as its operating as a sequential twin effectively, without having to divide the exhaust energy.

    F1 has already been here and tested this idea and thought joining a motor to the actual turbo is a better idea.

    Yea that is true but it is still best way to do X in this regard.

    I look forward to your hypothesis as to why that is

    By "lag" I meant boost threshold. That's what seems to actually matter more than "lag" and the term is kind of used interchangeably. So yeah, it works in the way you describe. It will bring the real turbo on faster, but it makes actual boost in and of its own which increases power before the real turbo comes on. Thats the real aim of it...

    This has advantages over putting a motor on an actual turbo. I think thats awesome too. But this way means a much smaller cheaper motor and compressor can be used and it wont surge when making boost at really low revs unlike forcing a big turbo to do that. But the motor on a real turbo could replace the alternator too. Its a really cool idea for sure.
