Boost Control

Some articles on boost control, boost, control:

Boost Controller - Principles of Operation
... Without a boost controller, air pressure is fed from the charge air (compressed side) of the turbocharger directly to the wastegate actuator via a vacuum hose ... In this simple configuration, the spring's springrate and preload determine how much boost pressure the system will achieve ... Springs are classified by the boost pressure they typically achieve, such as a "7 psi spring" that will allow the turbocharger to reach equilibrium at approximately 7 psi (0.48 ...
Boost Controller - Electronic Boost Control - Limitations and Disadvantages
... Electronic control may still enable control of boost to over double gauge pressure of the spring's rated pressure ... For instance, if a solenoid is installed to control boost electronically, it should be installed such that if the solenoid fails in the most common failure mode (probably non-energized ... or stepper motor could get stuck in a position that lets no boost pressure reach the wastegate, causing boost to quickly rise out of control ...
