A turbine is placed in an engine system to make use of energy contained in exhaust gases. It receives hot gases that are left over from the combustion process and converts them into useful shaft power that increases overall efficiency. The flow from each cylinder is highly dynamic since it is created by the exhaust valve opening and closing. An engine with more than four cylinders must separate the flows in order to prevent interaction that can lose some of the available energy.
