The requirements for the reduction of CO2 emissions imposed by the European Commission for passenger cars has driven the automotive industry to develop technological solutions to limit exhaust emissions and fuel consumption, without compromising vehicle performance and drivability.
Vehicle hybridization is a key solution to achieve such targets in short/midterm, enabling a restricted engine operating range and thus a limited turbocharger optimized behavior.
In this rapidly developing scenario, it follows that boosting technology will become more and more relevant as a key technology for spark-ignition engines, to improve efficiency and reduce fuel consumption, where the electric drive is off. In such conditions, new combustion concepts are likely to require very high boost pressures with an unprecedented need for efficiency and challenging transients.
This Special Issue will collect research on advanced boosting systems, welcoming innovative papers on this subject. The main topics of interests are related (but not limited to) the following:
- Advanced boosting systems
- Variable geometry turbine
- Electrically assisted turbocharger
- Electrically assisted compressor
- Two-stage systems
- Compressor surge
- Pulsating flow turbine performance
- Pulsating flow compressor performance
- Gasoline Millerized engines
- Modeling of hybrid turbocharged engines

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
