We’ve been using spark plugs to ignite fuel inside of engines for over 100 years.
Maybe it’s time to change that. Transient Plasma Systems (TPS) developed a system that uses fast pulses of plasma, an electrically charged gas, at a low temperature to ignite all sorts of fuels.
The low temperature improves thermal efficiency and the whole process requires less energy and provides better emissions. Here Sean McElroy talks Dan Singleton, the CEO of TPS.
