This paper presents a method of analysis of effective permeability of the flame in burning natural gas. In order to conduct a complex analysis, it is necessary to determine this parameter as a special case of the process of quasi-plasma nature for the purpose of investigating the options for application of suitable industrial methods applied in similar cases. We observed the synergy of solenoid parameters of the plasma part of the flame with ceramic materials without any special additional customization of the measurement device. The processed results of measurement demonstrate additional requirements necessary for measurement technology. The method was applied for various cases of energy of pulse signals and for two types of finalized sensors. The method uses a definite marker in observed voltages, which is realized after exceeding the gate voltage in the forward direction of the fast semiconductor valve. Results of measurement show that the values of effective permeability can be measured via this method with acceptable sensitivity.
