A work machine having an internal combustion engine such as a diesel is connected to a transmission by a flexible coupling. The engine may have a turbocharger to increase its output. A power turbine is connected to receive exhaust products from the turbocharger turbine via an exhaust aftertreatment device. The power turbine is connected to either the transmission downstream of the flexible coupling or to an external load. In either case, the power turbine in the form of a centripetal turbine is isolated from the torsional vibrations of the IC engine.
1. A propulsion system comprising: an air breathing, fuel consuming reciprocating internal combustion (IC) engine providing a rotary power output and producing products of combustion;a power distribution device having at least a first rotary input and at least one rotary output;an elastomeric flexible coupling connecting the rotary output of said IC engine to the first rotary input of said power distribution device, said coupling damping torsional vibration in the rotary power output of said IC engine;at least one turbo machinery device receiving the pro...
