A multi-stage turbocharger system has been constructed for HALE UAV internal combustion engine. To boost rarefied intake air up to sea level condition, the turbocharger system should consist of 3 stages including heat exchanger located after compressor outlet to drop compressed air temperature. One dimensional system analysis has been conducted by matching required power between compressor and turbine and adequate turbochargers have been searched for from commercially available models targeting for automobiles. By applying commercial automobile turbochargers to the multi-stage turbocharger system, it is expected that considerable amount of research resources will be saved.
