The performance of spark ignition systems is limited by their small spark gap size and corona ignition systems are costly due to their complexity regarding the prevention of arcing. The Advanced Plasma Ignition (API) system is a hybrid corona and spark ignition system that combines the good performance of corona systems with the low cost of spark systems to achieve a good cost-benefit ratio. First API is presented in comparison to spark and corona systems and then some initial test results are presented.
