This study aims to develop innovative plasma combustion system to improve fuel economy and achieve higher efficiency without any modification of current engine configuration. A new plasma combustion system was applied to the compression-expansion engine and single-cylinder spark ignition engine. Flame images and combustion characteristics were investigated and compared between plasma combustion and standard spark ignition to show the advantage of plasma combustion.
