How Glow Plugs Work

Every engine needs three things run - fuel, oxygen and the ignition. The glow plug offers the ignition through a small coil of wire within the plug, which is usually done with the help of 1.5v battery having a glow ignitor.

There are times when diesel-powered engines do not start as desired. This happens because of necessary heat is missing in the combustion chambers. Hence, the engine is unable to reach the required temperatures without the addition of heat. That’s when a car glow plug engine plays its role. It plays a key role in starting diesel-powered engines. The glow plugs for diesel engines serve as a heating device that brings additional energy to start the engine. Diesel engines do not use spark plugs to induce combustion like petrol engines. Instead, they completely rely on compression to raise the air temperature to a point where diesel can combust spontaneously when introduced to hot high-pressure air. The high pressure and the spray pattern of diesel ensure complete burn. Then the piston rises and compresses the air in the cylinder which leads air temperature to rise. The heat development of glow plugs also optimizes the combustion in order to reduce the development of smoke and other emissions.

How does it work?

Every engine needs three things run – fuel, oxygen and the ignition. The glow plug offers the ignition through a small coil of wire within the plug, which is usually done with the help of 1.5v battery having a glow ignitor. Once the heating element, usually a coil of wire is heated and the engine started, the plug offers the continuous ignition to the engine.

After the historic journey, Solar plane lands in Dayton, Ohio

The plane can climb to 28,000 feet (8,500 meters), but generally flies at lower altitudes at night to conserve energy.

(Reuters) – An experimental airplane powered solely by energy from the sun landed in Ohio on Saturday night on the latest leg of its historic bid by pilots and developers to fly around the globe without a drop of fuel.

The single-seat Solar Impulse 2 aircraft arrived in Dayton shortly before 10 p.m. local time, some 17 hours after leaving Phoenix Goodyear Airport, the project team said on its official Twitter page.

“People told the Wright Brothers & us what we wanted to achieve was impossible,” said Bertrand Piccard after landing. “They were wrong!”

The locale was of special significance to the pilots, as the  home base to aviation pioneers Orville and Wilbur Wright.

Amanda Wright Lane, a descendant of the brothers, neither of whom ever married, was on hand to welcome the flight.

With a wingspan exceeding that of a Boeing 747 but an ultra-light carbon-fiber skin and overall weight of a car, the Solar Impulse cruises at speeds ranging from only 34 to 62 miles per hour (55 to 100 kph).

The four engines of the propeller-driven aircraft are powered exclusively by energy collected from more than 17,000 solar cells built into its wings. Excess energy is stored in four batteries during daylight hours to keep the plane flying after dark.

The plane can climb to 28,000 feet (8,500 meters), but generally flies at lower altitudes at night to conserve energy.

Piccard and Andre Borschberg have been taking turns piloting the plane on each leg of the journey. Both have trained to stay alert for long stretches of time by practicing meditation and hypnosis.

Borschberg set a new endurance record for the longest non-stop solo flight last July during a 118-hour trans-Pacific crossing, over five days and five nights, from Japan to Hawaii. He also set new duration and distance records for solar-powered flight. Battery damage sustained during the crossing kept the aircraft grounded for nine months.

The Swiss team’s ultimate goal is to achieve the first round-the-world solar-powered flight, part of its campaign to bolster support for clean-energy technologies.

The team hopes eventually to complete its circumnavigation in Abu Dhabi, the starting point for the journey in March 2015.

The two men completed an earlier multi-flight crossing of the United States in a prototype of the solar plane in 2013 as a precursor to their globe-circling quest.
