Effect of Reactor Design on the Plasma Treatment of NOx
SAE INTERNATIONAL WARRENDALE PA
Pagination or Media Count:
This paper presents the results of experiments in which various parameters were varied systematically in an attempt to understand how the reactor design affects the energy efficiency for plasma processing of NOx. These parameters include the packing material, electrode diameter, and voltage frequency. It is shown that the applied voltage is not the relevant parameter when comparing the performance of different plasma reactors. The important control parameter is the input energy density. Consequently, different reactor designs should yield basically the same plasma chemistry if the experiments are performed under identical gas composition and temperature conditions.
