Application of a HF Electric Field Applied-Type Ignition System
Published October 12, 2011 by Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan in Japan
We aimed at the development of the powerful ignition system (active ignition) that achieves highly effective combustion without a large-scale structural change from a conventional engine. In this study, we investigated the ignition ability of a new system by using combination of HF electric field and spark. This system can strengthen plasma by the effect of HF electric field. Compared to the conventional system, the results showed that it has good performance under high speed flow field.
