Ignition systems for industrial gas turbines, in use for decades, continue to evolve with improving technology. A recent development is the use of microprocessors and solid-state semiconductor power switching devices (digital systems). Extensive testing of digital systems has demonstrated excellent ignitability, reliability, and plug life compared to traditional analog systems. Furthermore, digital systems demonstrate a potential for combustion feedback.
