An ignition coil is an essential component of an internal combustion engine’s ignition system. Its primary function is to convert the low voltage from the battery into a high-voltage electrical spark, which is necessary to ignite the air-fuel mixture in the engine’s cylinders. The ignition coil is typically mounted near the engine and is connected to the distributor or directly to the spark plugs in modern ignition systems. It consists of two coils of wire, the primary coil and the secondary coil, wound around an iron core. The primary coil is connected to the battery’s low-voltage circuit, while the secondary coil is connected to the spark plugs .When the engine’s ignition system is activated, current flows through the primary coil, creating a magnetic field around the iron core. This magnetic field intensifies as the current increases. When the current is abruptly interrupted, such as by opening the circuit with a breaker point or electronic control module, the magnetic field collapses rapidly. This collapse of the magnetic field induces a high voltage in the secondary coil through electromagnetic induction. The high voltage produced by the secondary coil is then sent to the spark plugs, where it creates a spark to ignite the compressed air-fuel mixture in the engine’s cylinders. The ignition coil plays a crucial role in the efficient operation of the engine. If the ignition coil malfunctions or fails, it can lead to engine misfires, reduced power, and difficulty starting the engine. In such cases, it is necessary to replace the faulty ignition coil to restore proper engine performance. It’s important to note that while the basic function and principles of an ignition coil remain the same, the specific design and configuration may vary depending on the type of ignition system used in a particular vehicle or engine.
