On the Effect of Nonequilibrium Plasma on the Minimum Ignition Energy—Part 1: Discharge Model Conference Paper uri icon


  • The mathematical model of a repetitive nanosecond pulse discharge at atmospheric-pressure conditions has been presented. The influence of initial gas temperature, chemical kinetics, and vibrational nonequilibrium on the ignition of methane-air and ethylene-air mixtures has been analyzed. © 2010 IEEE.
