10 Kw of electric motor spinning a turbo equals more than double that.

The only issue is the specialized high speed heat resistant motor you need to turn the turbine.
Interesting idea,
However, with 10kW you're probably bringing the engine into serious overboost.
With risk of blowing the engine, or, a waste gate will be opened and energy lost, or just a fraction of the electric motor's power .
Electric supercharging from an electric exhaust turbine might be an option..
