Main topics include mathematical modeling of plasma assisted ignition and combustion taking into account detailed combustion and plasma kinetics, non-equilibrium plasma physics, breakdown mechanisms, flow dynamics and turbulence.
Analysis of non-dimensional criteria, main physical mechanisms of non-equilibrium plasma ignition at high pressure conditions, energy exchange mechanisms, influence of the discharge power on the flame velocity and turbulent spectrum.
Applications: ignition system based on the nanosecond pulsed discharge for internal combustion engines, a nanosecond pulsed igniter for the flame stabilization
New research projects
