Model Glow Plag driver circuit

Posted on Oct 6, 2012

model airplanes, boats, cars and use of ignition of glow plugs for their miniature (O. Bcc to 15cc) internal combustion engines. These engines happen with the heavy batteries on board, HT coil, and `condenser` spark required for ignition classic, while simultaneously developing much higher RPM (and thus power) as the compression ignition (diesel) engines . The heart of a candle is a coil of platinum alloy filament heated to start the engine by an external battery, or 1. 5 volts or 2 volts. To complete this battery, a second power supply of 12 volts is often necessary to start the engine, together with a third type 6 volt electric fuel pump.

Rather than being overwhelmed by these multiple energy sources, the model builder prefer to wear (and buy) a single 12 volt battery, stemming from lower voltages from this by the use of appropriate electronic step-down transformers (choppers). The pilot light and shown it has the additional advantage of (through negative feedback) to maintain a constant temperature independent decision to drown the engine, or age volts while the starter is starting. In this circuit, the PUT relaxation oscillator turns on transistor Ql Q2 output of the chopper at a fixed repetition rate determined by R and C1. The current then flows through the spark plug and the parallel combination of resistor R2 and the current direction indicator associated with the relaxation HILL Schmitt. With the cold cap (low resistance), current is high, the hill is biased "on", and Q3 results in order to support the base of Q2. Once the cap has reached operating temperature, which can be controlled by its ohmic resistance, theHllL is programmed (via RJ extinguish, remove base drive of Q2 and Q3. However, since the glow plug HAVL sense, no resistance, only val id if the voltage is constant, which is not always the case. Transistor Q4 provides adequate compensation in this case, if the voltage drops (during cold start, for example), the collector current of Q4 rises, causing more current through the diode, thereby delaying the cutoff point for a given socket. The circuit has taken the temperature relatively constant, with the cap is completely dry or completely wet- 'on a range of input voltages from 8 to 16 volts. A similar configuration can be used to maintain a constant temperature of Plug size diesel truck full light (glow plug 28-volt supply, 12 volts), in this case, since the temperature excursions sheet is not so great resistance to expand HR hysteresis may be necessary ..
