Thanks Andrew I thought this was probably the most interesting piece of info:

Tin= 70 deg F + 460 = 530 deg R
Pin= -0.5 psig + 14.7 = 14.2 psia
Pout= 19 psig + 14.7 = 33.7 psia
Pout/Pin = 33.7/14.2 = 2.373 (this is the compression ratio)
Tout = 530 + 530 x (-1+2.3730.263 ) = 717.8 deg R - 460 = 257.8 deg F

Cant really add much to that

I think you'll find he got that bit wrong, he was talking 17psig but wrote 19 in the calc...


Andrew
Who's bee researcing what causes turbo surging tonight...

The guy in the 2nd link has got his definitions wrong for points 5,6 and to an extent 7.

Adrian, I think a 15T and 15G have the same size compressor but a 15T has single height compressor blades, and the 15G has dual height. I believe the G type turbos are more efficient than the Ts.

That makes sense. The g's being more efficient, but "perhaps" the T's have a higher surge limit to allow for boost at lower rpm. That would make sense for having more full length blades I think, and goes well with the Saab design philosophy about low end torque. Does anyone know what the flow limit is for a 15T though? If it's the same as the G or not? Just curious where it runs out of breath. Thanks bunches!

Yours Truly,
Addy
