Title: Turbocharger systems and method to prevent compressor choke

Abstract

Systems and methods are provided for a turbocharger compressor, where the system may comprise: an actuatable annular disk comprising choke slots therein; an outer annular disk comprising choke slots therein; and an actuator to rotate the actuatable annular disk relative to the outer annular disk to vary alignment of the choke slots of the actuatable annular disk and the outer annular disk. The actuator may be controlled by an engine controller responsive to operating conditions of the compressor and actuated to align choke slots. Alignment of the choke slots allows air to be drawn into the impeller effectively expanding the compressor flow capacity to prevent compressor choke.
