TPS wins DoE SBIR Phase IIB grant for Development of a Low-Energy Nanosecond Pulsed Ignition System Enabling High-Efficiency Dilute Gasoline Combustion

Transient Plasma Systems, based in Torrance, CA was awarded a SBIR Phase IIB grant for “Development of a “sparkless” ignition system for high-efficiency dilute gasoline and natural gas engines. This grant comes on the heels of a successful completion of Phase II grant work that focused on developing a platform for avoiding spark breakdown, which will now be used to demonstrate improved spark plug lifetime.
