Inductive ignition system

Part of the Bosch Professional Automotive Information book series (BPAI)


Ignition of the air/fuel mixture in the gasoline engine is electric; it is produced by generating a flashover between the electrodes on a spark plug. The ignition-coil energy converted in the spark ignites the compressed mixture immediately adjacent to the spark plug, creating a flame front which then spreads to ignite the mixture in the entire combustion chamber. The inductive ignition system generates in each power stroke the high voltage required for flash - over and the spark duration required for ignition. The electrical energy drawn from the vehicle electrical system battery is temporarily stored in the ignition coil for this purpose.
