This study aims to develop the innovative plasma combustion system to improve fuel economy and achieve the higher efficiency without any modification of current engine configuration. We developed prototype plasma combustion system based on microwave plasma generation. Plasma can be generated in an elevated up to air pressure 2.0 MPa. A sparkplug built-in antenna is developed.
