It is important to know Minimum Ignition Energy(MIE) of flammable materials for ignition hazard of chemical processes etc.. Currently a capacitor discharge is used mainly to measure the MIE. Then, it is impossible to control actively discharge energies and discharge time because the MIE measurement uses a high voltage capacitor and fixed capacitor. However, the control of discharge energy and discharge time will be convenient if self-sustain discharge is used. In this paper, we measured the MIE by self-sustain discharge of a pulse shape to propose the new measuring method of the MIE. AS a result, ignition energies are increased gradually as discharge duration time gets longer, and discharge current grows larger. Also, an arc discharge and a glow discharge occurred during the experimental period, and the ignition by glow discharges happened when discharge duration time was 90s, discharge current was 8A and 1A. Especially, the MIE occurred the 0.05mm and 0.08mm of the gap distance between discharge electrode in the same discharge duration time.
