Abstract
This report contains a study of the energy transfer from an inductive circuit to the discharge under the conditions of the minimum discharge voltage being smaller than the source voltage. The report includes an analysis of the effect of the electrode separation speed on the duration and maximum power amplitude of the discharge and a recommendation for optimal electrode setting. Experimental data on the variation of maximum discharge power required for ignition as a function of volumetric gas content for methane-air and propane-air mixtures and experimental determination of the ignition limit for discharges derived from a 20- 15-, 10-, and 6-volt inductive-resistive circuit in 8.3 percent methane-air mixture, and a method for calculating ignition limits for other source voltages are included.
