Summary of 35 pages of the PLASMHYRAD project of the CNRS-GREMI of Orleans entitled:
"Combustion assisted by hydrogen and radicals generated by a non-thermal plasma"
The first tests were carried out at GREMI with a tubular laboratory reactor comprising two parallel electrodes. The power supply used is a voltage-lift magnetic leakage transformer (220V / 15kV) at 50 Hz. The first objective was to define the methane air mixtures that could be used, knowing that the limit of methane concentration is defined by the HEL which is 15% and that the carbon deposit is prohibited to allow the operation of the engine. The tests were carried out at atmospheric pressure.
