Abstract

The spark that ignites the combustible mixtures is a discharge produced between the electrodes of a spark plug, connected to the secondary of a coil at the high voltage. Optimum combustion requires a steady spark, in a volume as large as is possible, and with maximum energy. We propose a solution to increase the plasma volume and present electrical discharge parameters as a function of inter-electrode distances, pressures in the test-reactor and the width of the electrical pulses of the power supply.
