Abstract: A turbocharger is the most used component in an automobile. It is widely employing in marine engines and aircraft engines to provide dense air to the combustion chamber. Due to the friction between the bearings and the own impeller weight of the rotors of the turbine and compressor turbo lag is caused. To rectify the turbo lag, we proposed magnetic Levitation principle. The use of magnets can reduce friction to a great extent, further it increases the efficiency of the turbocharger. The implementation magnetic levitation concept in the conventional turbocharger reduces the friction to a greater extent and decreases the turbo lag since the shaft of the turbocharger levitates freely and so less power is required to drive the shaft. The bearings are replaced by levitation concept hence there is no requirement for lubrication of bearings thus reducing the weight, space occupied, and making the turbocharger more efficient than the present one.
