Plasma Assisted Flame Holding of a Propane Jet
A nanosecond pulsed plasma discharge is used to ignite a propane-jet flame. The nonequilibrium plasma is produced by repetitive pulses of 30 kV peak voltage, 70 ns pulse width and 2 kHz repetition rate. The experimental results shows that the use of a repetitively nanosecond pulsed discharge resulted in significant increase in flame stability.
