4.3 OPTICAL SPARK PLUG SENSORS FOR COMBUSTION MEASUREMENTS TASKS
Stringent emissions targets force our industry into ever more complex
combustion technologies. The combination of electrification and
advanced combustion solutions provides key ingredients for clean and
efficient propulsion. As this results in increased efforts in powertrain
development, robust and thorough analysis methods become mandatory.
Beside the classic pressure sensors for combustion analysis AVL offers
optical spark plug sensors based on fiber optic technology for advanced
combustion analysis. This solution in combination with the X-FEM Visio
data acquisition module represents the perfect completion to the data
acquition platform X-ion for the detailed analysis of combustion phenomena.
