Abstract

The Homogeneous Charge Microwave Ignition (HCMI) system combines the advantages of a Spark Ignition- (SI) and Compression Ignition (CI) System. Petrol Internal Combustion Engines (ICEs) uses a spark ignition system, which currently offers only energy efficiency between 25% and 35% [1]. It also produces excessive exhaust emissions. The fact of using the advantages of both common ignition techniques makes a significant impact for the fuel consumption and emission of the combustion process. Through the HCMI system, the fuel inside of the engine cylinder will ignite time simultaneously, which improves the engine efficiency significant. Just four academic groups (Glasgow, West Virginia, Southern California and Pisa) are breaking research on microwave ignition engines. The University of Glasgow is one of the first groups to carry out any computer simulations of a Microwave Ignition (MI) system and the first to use computational intelligence for the design to bring about this revolution.
