Esgee Technologies will present “High-Fidelity Numerical Modeling of Spark Plug Erosion” at the SAE International World Congress Experience 2019, April 9-11, at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan. Abstract Spark plug erosion is critical in determining the overall efficiency of a spark ignition engine. Over its lifetime, a spark plug is subject to millions of firings. Each spark event results in material erosion due to several mechanisms such as melting, vaporization, sputtering and oxidation. With

Esgee Technologies will present “Simulation of Spark-Initiated Combustion” at the SAE International World Congress Experience 2019, April 9-11, at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan. Abstract There has been an increased interest in understanding the initial stages of flame kernel formation in internal combustion engines as it offers a potential way of improving their thermal efficiency. For spark-ignited engines, the dynamics that govern the initial spark and its transition into a flame kernel play an

Esgee Technologies is excited to attend the International Conference on Ignition Systems for Gasoline Engines next week, December 6-7, in Berlin, Germany. Join Esgee Tech’s Doug Breden for his talk on “Numerical Modelling of Electrode Ablation for Spark Plug Lifetime Prediction.” He’ll discuss how high-fidelity arc simulation, combined with dynamic surface deformation and timescale acceleration techniques, can be used to effectively predict spark plug life. This capability reduces the need for field testing, expands design

helical resonator plasma simulation

Esgee Technologies will be attending the 71st Annual Gaseous Electronics Conference in Portland, Oregon next week, November 5 – 9. Join Esgee Tech’s Rochan Upadhyay for his talk on “Computational Modeling and Simulation of a Resonant Plasma Source.” He’ll demonstrate how electrical resonance can be exploited to extend low temperature, unmagnetized plasma sources beyond their typical operating limits. Esgee also supported the work being presented by Tokyo Electron America’s Peter Ventzek. He will present “Parametric Modeling
