Recently, many vehicle manufacturers started to invest in new technology to reduce the emission produced by their engines. Due to the emission regulations that become more stringent and the rising demand for highly efficient vehicles, many new technologies were introduced to achieve the demand. One of the technologies that gain popularity in modern vehicles is applying force induction systems such as turbocharging and supercharging the engine. By using the turbocharger, two major advantages can be achieved which are increasing engine efficiency and engine size reduction. However, turbocharger performance will be affected by the amount of heat that is generated due to friction inside the bearing, air compression process and also the heat transfer from the exhaust gas that has high temperature and pressure. In this paper, the heat generation inside the turbocharger unit without any external heat source was measured and analysed. A turbocharger unit from Garrett Turbocharger where the model is GT2056 was used for this experiment. The operating speed in the study is recorded between 20 000 rpm until 70 000 rpm and the temperature at the turbine inlet and compressor inlet is at room temperature. The parameters that were measured are the temperature difference at the turbine side, bearing housing and also compressor side. From the results obtained, it can be concluded that the bearing housing produces a higher amount of heat compared to the compressor side while the turbine side will experience heat loss.
