Development of Non-equilibrium Plasma and Combustion Integrated Model for Reaction Analysis 2019-01-2349
Control of self-ignition timing in a HCCI engine is still a major technical issue. Recently, the application of a non-equilibrium plasma using repetitively discharge has been proposed as the promising technology. However, non-equilibrium plasma reaction in higher hydrocarbon fuel mixture is very complicated. Hence, there have been few calculation reports considering a series of reactions from non-equilibrium plasma production to high temperature oxidation process. In this study, 0-dimensional numerical simulation model was developed in which both reactions of plasma chemistry and high temperature oxidation combustion was taken into account simultaneously. In addition, an ODEs solver has been applied for the reduction of calculation time in the simulation. By comparing calculation results with experiment such as self-ignition timing, the validity of the developed numerical model has been evaluated.
