POWER recovery from the exhaust gases of aircraft reciprocating engines is analyzed both for the cases where blowdown from each cylinder is used separately and for the cases where it is collected in an exhaust manifold and discharged in an essentially steady flow stream.
Performance and design considerations indicate that the blowdown system offers more advantages for compounding than the steady flow system.
