Charge air systems may include a small electric motor-driven compressor for supplying charge air to four-cycle internal combustion engines, including systems with turbocharger charge air compressors in series and parallel connection. The disclosed charge air systems can provide an effective charge air flow path to the internal combustion engine and avoids air flow restrictions at high engine operating speeds.
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A two stage charge air system for an internal combustion engine, said internal combustion engine having an exhaust gas manifold and an intake air manifold, comprising:a first stage charge air compressor capable of supplying less than about one-third of the charge air requirements of the internal combustion engine operating at full rated speed and load, said first stage charge air compressor having an air inlet and a compressed air outlet;an electric motor for driving said first stage charge air compressor;a first charge air co...
