In this study, we apply a new version of the Homotopy Analysis Method called decomposition of the homotopy analysis method (DHAM). The DHAM method is based on the decomposition of the right-hand side of a given system of differential equations into a sum of functions. After the decomposition one can apply the HAM method. The physical model that we investigate in this paper is a complex system of equations that contains nonlinear ordinary differential equations of the first order. The system of equations takes into account the important variables such as the pressure, the temperature, the mass flow, the torque due to the turbine turbocharger, the torque from the compressor, the speed of turbocharger, etc. This system is very complex and cannot be solved analytically. The HAM method includes an artificial small parameter that inserts into the physical model and hence it enables one to apply different asymptotic methods. We compared the results of DHAM and HAM to numerical simulations analyses. We concluded that the DHAM results are closer to the numerical simulation results.
