That the igniter is much more than a firing device in the combustion chamber of a gas turbine engine is ably demonstrated by the tests discussed here. Its requirements under various operating conditions and its effects on design and maintenance of a gas turbine have led to developments of new types that have longer life and higher performance rating. One of these types is the high energy igniter designed by Rolls-Royce. The kinds of tests to which this igniter has been subjected emphasize the related efficiencies and their economic import in engine and igniter designs.
