How the turbine works ?

To understand what the turbo wastegate actuator is for, you first need to know how the turbine works.

A turbocharger is composed of two parts, one is the exhaust turbine and the other is the compression turbine. The exhaust turbine is connected to the exhaust manifold. When the engine reaches a certain speed, the exhaust gas has enough energy to drive the turbine wheel to rotate in the turbine housing.

After the turbine wheel starts to rotate, the compressor wheel will also rotate in the compressor housing, so that the compression turbine can compress the air and blow it into the cylinder to increase the power of the engine.

As the engine speed increases, the pressure on the exhaust turbine increases, and if there is no device to control the pressure of the turbine, then the turbine will explode. Therefore, engineers designed the turbo wastegate actuator.

When the pressure of the exhaust turbine is too high, the turbo wastegate actuator will be opened, so that the exhaust gas from the engine can be discharged directly without passing through the exhaust turbine, so as to avoid the phenomenon of excessive pressure of the turbine.

General turbocharged engines will be equipped with mechanical turbo wastegate actuator, and some high-end turbocharged engines will be equipped with electronic turbo actuator. Electronic turbo actuator control is more precise and more responsive.

The turbo electronic actuator keeps the turbo pressure from getting too high and also prevents the turbo from turning too fast. If the turbine speed is too high, it will also damage the turbine.
