CPT's auto exhaust gas energy recovery system
I dunno, if you are committing to an electric supercharger and an electric turbogenerator, at some point you have to ask yourself how much of advantage having a detonation combustion chamber and the associated piston gear squeezed between the two really is. Why not jump up to a gas turbine burning diesel like a Capstone microturbine, and store excess energy in a flywheel/supercap/battery? Also, conceptually similar to the Turbodyne Dynacharger, which put a generator on the same shaft as a regular turbocharger, which meant excess shaft power from the turbo could be dumped into the motor generator (either to charge a battery, or run an electric braking system for the turbo) which means you could potentially eliminate the wastegate on a turbo.

SR Motor Made Small Enough for Hybrid Cars -- Tech-On!
Japanese research somewhat perfects a switched reluctance (SR) electric motor that uses no permanent magnets, yet has equivalent performance in a similar form factor.
