Abstract : In the combination of an internal combustion engine, a turbocharger and a waste gate, the improvement is the waste gate which includes a fluidic device having its inlet and outlet connected in parallel with the turbine of the turbocharger and a biasing port responsive to the output of the turbocharger to proportion the fluid flow from the inlet to the outlet between two parallel fluidic paths having a high and low flow resistance respectively. The fluidic device is a fluid amplifier providing radial and tangential flow to a vortex valve to produce the low and high resistance fluidic paths respectively. Alternatively, the fluidic devices could be in series with the turbocharger to backpressure the compressor of the turbocharger. (Author)
