How to use the charge! magazine glossary

Whether you run a shipping company, work in engineering or manage the parts and servicing side of your business, we’ve created a glossary to help you get to grips with everything from compressor maps to EEXI, microgrids and variable turbine geometry (VTG).

When it comes to the world of turbocharging, there are plenty of terms you may not be familiar with. Whether you run a shipping company, work in engineering or manage the parts and servicing side of your business, we’ve created a glossary to help you get to grips with everything from compressor maps to EEXI, microgrids and variable turbine geometry (VTG).

Using our new glossary couldn’t be easier. If we’re using specific terms or acronyms in an article, we’ll always try to link to the definition in the glossary, but if there’s anything you simply want to check out, all you have to do is click the menu button (those three bars) at the top right of the page.

From here, you’ll see a choice of six different options, with the glossary at the bottom. Tap glossary to open.

We’ve arranged the glossary from A-Z, making it as easy as possible to seek out the definitions you’re looking for. When you find a term you’re interested in and want to know more, simply tap it, and the definition will appear below.

You can also look at multiple definitions at the same time – simply tap more than one word, and you’ll see more than one definition appear – it really is that simple. We’ll also do our best to link to relevant articles, so once you know what a term means, you’ll also be able to see how it may be applicable to you and your business.

Over time, we’ll be extending our glossary to cover every related term and acronym we can think of, covering everything from the power industry to rail, construction and marine, but in the meantime we’ve started out with the foundations.

So if ever you get stuck, and wonder what we’re talking about when we mention the Miller Cycle, nozzle rings or LNG, simply check out the glossary for an explanation.
