Abstract

In this work, we present the thermal behavior of a glow plug examined with thermal impedance modeling. The circuit model is based on the analogy of thermal and electrical domains and expresses the glow plug used in diesel engines to preheat the air-diesel fuel mixture. In this study, the circuit design, implementation, and simulation of a glow plug for diesel engines are illustrated. In order to verify this thermal model, 2 different glow plugs are produced. The test results of the glow plugs produced in this study show complete agreement with the simulation results. It is thought that this circuit-based model will provide fast and reliable simulations and will be beneficial in the industry for addressing different glow plug needs. \vs{-1mm}
