PC, what's a LHB? Wiki suggests it could be the Local Health Board, or a Left Handed Batsman, but they don't seem to fit this context.
If you are going to drive a generator, would it not be better to only run the generator at "full tilt" and couple some sort of battery/flywheel into the system to cover the time when the engine is off? The LHB could be really useful in that situation to minimize warm up time.
I think turbos rely to a significant extent on the kinetic energy they receive from the exhaust gas of the IC engine. When the IC engine is operating at low power, the air mass is greatly reduced, so post heating the exhaust, if that's what the system would do, won't be of much benefit.
