Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) engines with lean fuel/air mixtures have a number of advantages over conventional spark ignition engines and compression ignition engines. As the onset of HCCI combustion depends on the autoignition of the fuel, it is quite difficult to control the start of combustion directly. The experimental results showed that Pulsed Flame Jet (PFJ) behaved as a trigger for the autoignition of the fuel in the combustion chamber. Therefore it was revealed that PFJ has a potential for controlling the start of HCCI combustion directly.
