Carrier aggregation allows the capacities of TD LTE spectrum band and FD LTE spectrum band of same network to get combined to enable better spectrum utilization and efficiency. It may result in significantly higher data speeds and better coverage.
Their is no setting to enable this by users and it works automatically if the network provider and smartphones supports the same.
