Ignition systems for lean burn gas engines

Abstract:

This thesis describes an experimental investigation into ignition systems, their effects on the combustion process, and how the discharge is affected by the prevailing pressure, temperature and flow. The work is divided into four main areas, a comprehensive literature review, engine testing for ignition system suitability, non-flow rig testing (including erosion) and flow rig testing.

The literature review concluded that the most practical ignition system for lean burn gas engines w...
