Pulse turbocharging, which had a long history of successful operation in sea-level installations on two-stroke-cycle gas engines, did not give satisfactory results at high altitude as evidenced by increased thermal loading and reduced load-carrying ability. Proper application of the constant-pressure system overcame these difficulties. The underlying theory explaining these results, supported by factory and field developments, is given in this paper. Start-up, operational, and maintenance experiences are given on constant-pressure-turbocharged, two-cycle, uniflow engines at high altitude.
