boost control

A control system for maintaining suitable boost pressure in a reciprocating engine and preventing excessive boost. This is normally done with the help of an automatic boost control unit. The automatic boost control unit operates by opening and closing the throttle to adjust the engine RPM, and hence the manifold pressure, which results in the control of the weight of the charge entering the cylinders.
