Combustion Improvement by Using the Combination of High Performance Ignition System and Microwave System
Published October 12, 2011 by Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan in Japan
This study aims to develop the innovative combustion system to improve fuel economy and achieve the higher efficiency for SI engines. The combustion system that combined the active ignition and microwave supply system were applied to improve the combustion stability at high EGR rate condition. As the result, the combination of the active ignition and microwave system realized the short initial combustion period and high indicated mean effective pressure (IMEP) and low cyclic variation.
