Abstract:

The report results from the project tasking the researchers from the Kiev National Taras Shevchenko University under the STCU-EOARD-AFOSR Partner Program to study new methods of low-temperature plasma-enhanced reforming of liquid hydrocarbon bio-fuels in non-thermal plasma-liquid electric discharge systems for applications in prospective fuel-flexible plasma-assisted combustion technologies. The research program includes four research stages 1preparation of modules of plasma-chemical reactors for plasma reforming of liquid fuels by the electric discharge in a gas channel with liquid wall 2examination and characterization of gas-liquid discharge systems and processes of plasma reforming of liquid fuels using methods of optical emissionabsorption spectroscopy, gas chromatography, mass spectrometry and others 3study of regimes of plasma reforming of model fuel mixtures in gas-liquid discharge systems using numerical modeling and simulation together with experimental diagnostics and 4analysis and synthesis of research data and preparation of recommendations for its applications. This is a final progress report of research activity.
