    Abstract

    This paper describes the plasma-assisted combustion system intended to generate a torch flame with a high power density per unit area. In the system, a kind of hybrid concept is proposed. A primary unit for combustion sustaining is a low-current nonsteady-state plasmatron with a low level of electric power. The plasmatron activates an air/hydrocarbon mixture and sustains the oxidation processes in the plasma torch. In turn, the heat power of the torch sustains themain burning process in the torch flame. The results of experiments on propane oxidation in the plasma torch of plasmatron in a wide range of equivalence ratio are presented. As applied to the combustion system design, the plasma torch can provide both the complete and the partial propane oxidation with syngas generation.
