This study delves into the impact of electric turbochargers on fuel efficiency and emissions in ethanol-gasoline blends. Informed by relevant literature, the research zeroes in on the positive influence of electric turbochargers, emphasizing their role in reducing fuel consumption and emissions while also addressing the trade-off between flame characteristics and NOx emissions. The experimental focus is on the injection modification of a single cylinder, with samples including engines equipped with and without an electric turbocharger. Statistical analysis utilizing percentage-based methods reveals that this technology leads to a substantial 94% reduction in CO emissions at idle speed, a 49% decrease in HC emissions at idle speed, and a 10% increase in CO2 at idle speed. Additionally, it also results in a notable 16.04% reduction in fuel consumption at 40 km/h. These outcomes underscore the potential of electric turbochargers to enhance automotive efficiency and sustainability while acknowledging the trade-off that necessitates further exploration for optimal emission control. The research provides concrete insights for refining electric turbocharger technology and optimizing its practical application.


Keywords –Electric turbocharger, gasoline ethanol, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbon, single cylinder engine.
