Turbocharged internal combustion engine is a combination of turbine engine and aerial pistonengine, use combustion chamber and compression system the propellers to generate thrust.
The engine combines the characteristics of turbine engine and internal combustion engine such as high thermal efficiency, low fuel consumption, and high altitude.
The engine could have the same dynamic performance as at sea level, and achieve long endurance night at the height of 0-20km.
The engine can supply the power for such as rotary-wing and fixed wing aircraft which applied to general aviation, meteorological observation, agriculture protect, forest conservancy, rescue and relief work. It is also the ideal power of the high altitude long endurance unmanned air vehicle.
