The main differences between Turbocharger and Supercharger are Turbocharger is driven by the exhaust gas of an engine, whereas The supercharger is directly driven by the engine through a belt drive.
Before moving to further detailed explanation lets have some overview of Turbocharger and Supercharger.
Note: At the bottom of every article the PDF link is attached make sure if you want you can easily download.
Difference Between Turbocharger and Supercharge:
Here are the 10 Points on the difference between Turbocharger and Supercharger:
|1.||It is directly driven by the engine through a belt drive.||It is driven by the exhaust gas of an engine.|
|2.||Supercharger generates more noise.||It generates less noise because it used exhaust gases.|
|3.||The supercharger is more costly than the turbocharger.||The turbocharger is less costly.|
|4.||It is not essential to use inter-cooler in the supercharger.||Because turbocharger work by exhaust gases so inter-cooler is essential.|
And the 6 Point are:
|5.||It increases engine power by about 30-40%.||It increases engine power by about 30-50%.|
|6.||The supercharger uses the useful power of an engine to drive the compressor.||The turbocharger uses the power of exhaust (waste power) gases to drive the compressor.|
|7.||The supercharger is connected by the crankshaft, so it starts working suddenly as the engine start.||Turbocharger used exhaust gases to operate, so it does not work until sufficient smoke is generated by the engine.|
|8.||A supercharger is a unit that is bolted to the engine and connected with a belt drive between a crankshaft and the supercharger unit.||A turbocharger is similar to a supercharger, except it has an exhaust housing instead of a belt drive, and runs by exhaust gasses.|
|9.||Because it uses the useful power of the engine so it decreases the engine efficiency.||Because it uses exhaust gases to drive the compressor, resulting in increased efficiency.|
|10.||The supercharger is difficult to adopt in the car because it occupies a large space.||When we considered design, the turbocharger is compact and easily adapted in the cars.|
So this our short presentation on the comparison between Turbocharger and supercharger, I hope you like it if so, let me know your thoughts in the comment section.
