Due to their compact design and high efficiency, oil-free electrical turbo compressors are ideally suited for mobile fuel cell systems, e.g. in vehicles and thus have great energy saving potential compared to standard compressors. This article presents a comparison with other compressor technologies and the potential for improvement in converter topology.

Additional electrical compressors have long been considered to enhance response behavior of engines. In combination with appropriate software and motor parametrization, an additional compressor can also reduce pollutant emission. Robert Bosch GmbH works on the development of the required software and components for the use of an electrical turbo compressor for diesel engines. Bosch has successfully tested, combined with the respective control, the Celeroton turbo compressor CT-14-1000 in a diesel motor test rig.

High speed rotating elements, such as disc shaped rotors crossing a beam, infrared and x-Ray-choppers; diffusor-discs in interferometers; mirrors in high-speed cameras or laser systems, are used to deflect a beam. The modular assembly of the magnetic bearing motor CM-AMB-400 allows the use of an application specific rotor. The concept of the magnetic bearing motor is such that a beam can be guided in radial or axial direction to the rotor to be deflected or chopped by the rotation.

Oil-free turbo compressors with gas bearings are not only used for the compression of air with 1 bar ambient pressure, but also for other pressure levels or refrigerants.
