Pulsed power spark plugs for plasma assisted combustion.
Pulstar's pulse converts fuel to highly excited plasma.
Switching to Pulstar spark plugs is easy; they are designed to fit most cars, trucks, SUVs, and motorcycles.
Pulstar Spark Plugs use pulsed power technology to turn a small portion of gaseous air-fuel mixture into highly excited plasma that ignites immediately and burns quickly. This innovative plasma producing technology burns fuel more quickly and efficiently to enhance engine performance.
Pulstar Spark Plugs improve engine performance with plasma assisted combustion through the use of technology developed with the help of Sandia National Laboratories, a United States Department of Energy laboratory. Pulstar uses an internal capacitor to store energy delivered prior to the formation of the spark. When the spark is formed, this energy is released in a powerful, five megawatt, nanosecond electrical pulse. This intense pulse of energy interacts with the gaseous air-fuel mixture, converting it to highly reactive plasma. The plasma affected fuel ignites immediately and burns rapidly, igniting the remaining gaseous fuel by exposing it to a large surface area of flame.
Two-time Indy 500 Winner and Pulstar Performance Expert
Born into a family of IndyCar nobility and raised to uphold a racing legacy, Al Unser Jr knows about engine performance. The Motorsports Hall of Fame inductee began working with the Pulstar Spark Plug line in June of 2014. Prior to joining the company, he tested Pulstar on his 2011 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ. On average, Pulstar added 5 feet.-lbs. of torque and 5 horsepower. “I immediately noticed the difference: better acceleration, better mileage, and better drivability.”
Captured by AVL using a process known as Schlieren photography, this video up top shows Pulstar’s 5MW pulse followed by the plasma affected fuel mixture burning at twice the rate of the conventional spark plug. Filmed at 64,000 frames-per-second, this independent third-party test shows a side-by-side comparison of Pulstar and the top-selling premium iridium spark plug. AVL is an Austrian-based automotive consulting firm and independent research institute and is well known in the automotive industry and among OEMs. Matthias Neubauer of AVL and Enerpulse’s founder and chief technology officer Lou Camilli co-authored a paper on this technology, which was reviewed and published by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).
A typical capacitor has three parts: a positive plate, a negative plate, and a dielectric media. The positive plate attracts the energy while the negative plate provides it access to ground. The dielectric media prevents the energy from crossing between the two plates, forcing the energy to collect and be “stored” on the positive plate.
Pulstar Spark Plugs use the copper gas seal as a positive plate, the threaded metal shell as the negative plate – giving access to ground, and the insulator acts as the dielectric media that prevents energy from crossing between the two.
Pulsed power is the relatively slow accumulation of energy followed by its rapid release, resulting in the delivery of a larger amount of instantaneous power over a shorter period of time. Energy stored within electrostatic fields (capacitors) is released over a very short interval (a process that is called energy compression), delivering a huge amount of peak power. Pulstar Spark Plugs use a capacitor to store energy delivered by the vehicles ignition coil prior to achieving breakdown voltage (forming a spark). When a spark is formed, the energy stored in the capacitor is also released. This release of energy creates a pulse equal to 5,000,000 watts (5MW) and takes approximately three nanoseconds to complete.
