  • Patent number: 10731547
    Abstract: A smooth shift is achieved between an operating region in which a first turbocharger is mainly operated and an operating region in which a second turbocharger is mainly operated. A PCM controls a throttle valve to use a first supercharging region in which a gas flow through an exhaust bypass passage is reduced and a second supercharging region in which the gas flow through the exhaust bypass passage is promoted differently based on the operating state of an engine. In an early stage of a shift from the first supercharging region to the second supercharging region, the PCM executes bridge control to allow the flow velocity of exhaust gas flowing into a large turbine to be higher than at a point in time at which the shift starts.
