Abstract

Plasma-assisted combustion (PAC) is a hot topic in the combustion community as it can facilitate better ignition and flame stabilization in lean conditions. Specially, non-equilibrium plasma has potential which allows us to operate combustion in low temperature regimes which cannot be obtained through thermal pathways. Radicals can be produced at such rates that volumetric ignition can be achieved in hydrocarbon-air flows at low plasma temperatures. Strategies to achieve these conditions and initial results will be presented in the poster.
