The Spatial Plasma Discharge Ignition System is used as an ignition module in internal combustion engines (ICE). Its implementation leads to an increase in engine fuel efficiency. The purpose of this 4-month internship is to implement a fuel and air regulating system equipped with electric solenoids and pressure transducers to measure the pressure gradients in a combustion calorimeter. The partner corporation will provide facilities for the intern to conduct experiments although it is up to the intern to construct the apparatuses and conduct the experiments. The partner corporation will benefit from the program by being able to conduct its own subsequent experiments allowing further development of their product. The research results will also support the company’s patent application.
