How to add simulated turbo in cfg?

Recommended Posts

Hi. If I wanted to "supe up" a plane, any plane, what edit would I do in the cfg?

I'd like to simulate adding turbo.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Below is a copied section from Carenado's Barron 58 that has been configured for turbocharged engines.. The highlighted are the essential areas to change in order to achieve a "turbo" aircraft engine. The manifold pressure parameters and critical altitude may differ for your application--however this should get you started. You will find the "GeneralEngineData" in the aircraft cfg. file.

 

[GeneralEngineData]
engine_type = 0
Engine.0 = -1.7, -5.2, 0.0
Engine.1 = -1.7,  5.2, 0.0
fuel_flow_scalar= 0.70
min_throttle_limit =  0.0

[piston_engine]
power_scalar = 1.05
cylinder_displacement= 91.7
compression_ratio= 8.0
number_of_cylinders= 6
max_rated_rpm= 2700.0
max_rated_hp= 325.0
fuel_metering_type= 0
cooling_type= 0
normalized_starter_torque= 0.3
turbocharged= 1  (a non turbocharged aircraft would have a "0" )
max_design_mp= 39.5
min_design_mp= 1.0
critical_altitude= 18000.0
emergency_boost_type= 0
emergency_boost_mp_offset= 0.0
emergency_boost_gain_offset= 0.0
fuel_air_auto_mixture= 0
auto_ignition= 0
max_rpm_mechanical_efficiency_scalar= 1.0
idle_rpm_mechanical_efficiency_scalar= 1.0
max_rpm_friction_scalar= 1.0
idle_rpm_friction_scalar= 1.0
