  • Patent number: 9435253
    Abstract: An exhaust gas turbocharger module and internal combustion engine outfitted therewith are disclosed. The exhaust gas turbocharger modules have an individual turbocharging assembly with a low-pressure exhaust gas turbocharger with a low-pressure turbine and a low-pressure compressor which have a common first turbocharger axis. A high-pressure exhaust gas turbocharger is provided with a high-pressure turbine and a high-pressure compressor which have a common second turbocharger axis extending perpendicular to the first turbocharger axis. The low-pressure turbine is connected downstream of the high-pressure turbine via an exhaust gas connection line, and the high-pressure compressor is connected downstream of the low-pressure compressor via a charge air connection line. A housing receives the low-pressure turbine, the high-pressure turbine and the exhaust gas connection line. The low-pressure compressor, the high-pressure compressor, and the charge air connection line are arranged outside of the housing.

  • Patent number: 6776140
    Abstract: Fuel is conveyed by at least one high-pressure pump from a low-pressure region into a high-pressure region including a pressure-accumulator line consisting of at least two separate accumulator units connected to one another by means of feed lines, and to fuel injectors for the cylinders. The accumulator units each have an accumulator volume for serving at least two cylinders, and accumulator covers provided on both end faces. All the functional units are integrated into these accumulator covers in terms of fuel delivery and transfer, and at least one separate pump accumulator is arranged in the high-pressure region between the high-pressure pump and the assembled pressure-accumulator line. The pump accumulator is connected to at least one accumulator cover of an accumulator unit of the pressure-accumulator line for fuel conveyance and is capable of being acted upon by at least one high-pressure pump.
