Abstract:

This work explores the feasibility of enhancing the electrical power handling capabilities of a flowing gas by means of acoustically generated disturbances. Air flowing between electrodes, which are mounted perpendicular to the flow, is excited by acoustic drivers, mounted on two sides of a test section, in an attempt to increase the glow-discharge power input to the electrodes prior to breakdown and subsequent arcing.
