Variable Spark Ignition (VSI)
- A continuous spark with variable duration and controllable energy released into the combustion chamber.
- Multi-sparks, with controllable duration between sparks (10us or longer), and controllable duration and energy of each spark.
- Obtaining the optimum spark to different engine conditions in order to achieve good combustion stability and minimum sparkplug wear, utilising a unique closed loop feedback system.
- Power delivered can be as high as 1 Joule per millisecond, with a maximum energy of 1 Joule per cycle.
- All the above contained in enclosures similar in size and cost than conventional systems.
- Enclosure acts as a Faraday cage, which minimise RFI emissions.
- The systems appear to be smaller than new systems currently in development.
- Compatible with current engine architecture (Plug & play).
