For summer 2016, I had the opportunity to be a spark ignition intern at Cummins. I developed a user interface data analyzer for Cummins’ natural gas engines, image of the tool is seen below. The tool I developed can analyze the field test data and make accurate predictions when the engine’s spark plugs should be replaced. This is beneficial for the customer and the environment in order to prevent engine misfires, which prevents unburned hydrocarbons from being released into the atmosphere, decreasing pollution. The tool is also capable of plotting various data relationships and it can run on MATLAB or it can be downloaded as a separate executable program.
