An Experimental Study of the Jet Effect in the Plasma Jet Ignition
Published July 18, 1995 by Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan in Japan
The investigation regarding performance of plasma jet igniters was explored by using a constant volume vessel. This study focused on investigating the relationship between the jet effect and combustion enhancement. We aimed at the hot gas jet issuing after plasma jet had finished ejected. The hot gas penetration was visualized by the Schlieren system. In the cases of small energies, 0.63 and 0.90 J, the combustion enhancement effect is similar to that of combustion jet igniter. In cases of supplied energies, 2.45 and 5.00 J, the jet effect influences on the combustion enhancement effect for small characteristic length of the igniter.
