    A method of monitoring the quality of combustion in spark ignition gasoline engines using the spark plug's center electrode as a plasma probe is presented. Due to the ionized species remaining in the burned gases after combustion, a current is induced in a network attached to the spark plug's center electrode. The time dependence of this induced current is shown to correlate with the presence or a... View full abstract»

    Short whips (monopoles) are often used on vehicles when a quarter wavelength is too long. It is common knowledge that a loading coil located in series with the whip improves narrow band performance. This series inductive loading of monopole (dipole) antennas is analyzed by a piecewise sinusoidal moment method. When loaded to resonance, the current rises from the feed value to a peak slightly beyon... View full abstract»
