Abstract (en)

[origin: DE4235204A1] An ignition system for a spark-ignition engine (13) has an intermediate layer (10) between a cylinder block (12) and a cylinder head (11) which serves as a cylinder head gasket. The intermediate plate (10) carries at the inner edge of each drilled hole (14,...) at least two electrode pairs (15, 16...) to which an ignition voltage pulse generating device (26) applies a high-voltage energy through feed lines (19, 20...) laid in the intermediate layer. Diodes (27, 28...) in the feed lines (19, 20...) are used for equalizing the high-voltage energy fed to all the electrode pairs (15, 16...) of a cylinder.
