Design flexibility of Scuderi engine - Built in Miller cycle, supercharging, turbocharging, and Offset cylinders

Design flexibility is one of the major advantages of Scuderi engine. Many features that are hard to implement and require additional equipment in the conventional engine design are very easily accomplished in Scuderi split-cycle engine. Example for design flexibilities are given below

Built in Miller cycle

In order to achieve Miller cycle compression stroke make shorter than the expansion stroke by just increasing the length of the power cylinder.

Built in supercharging

Built in supercharging can be added to the engine by simply increase the diameter of compression cylinder. It helps compression cylinder to supply more air (oxygen) to power cylinder, letting it burn more fuel and do more work.

Built in turbocharging

Turbocharging is the method of recovering energy from the exhaust gas. The pressurized air from turbocharger is fed into the compression cylinder reduces the work done on the air. Instead of conventional turbocharger boost of 1.5 bars, in Scuderi engine turbocharger raise pressure more than 2.5 bars

Offset cylinders

Piston friction can be reduced by offsetting the compression and power cylinder.
