Modelling a Spark Plug for simulation project.

I am currently working in a project of modelling an ignition system in OpenModelica. It is required for me to develop a spark plug for detailed simulation which in turn needed to study the gap, pressure and it's effect to the breakdown voltage(Paschen Law). However, it is difficult for me to design such a model due to limited information on the internet. Can anyone have an idea on how to develop such model in OpenModelica?

Developing any model in OpenModelica would require the knowledge of equations and variables that govern the working of that model. Probably, you can perform some literature survey on the equations that are used in modelling the spark plug. Alternatively, did you check the existing native libraries in OpenModelica? If any such model is available, then you can drag & drop and use it in your ignition system.
