Plasma-Liquid System with Reverse Vortex Flow for Plasma-Catalytic Reforming

Section: Plasmas and Gases
Original Author's Text: Ukrainian

Abstract: A plasma-liquid system with the reverse vortex flow and a liquid electrode, which was designed for the plasma-catalytic reforming of hydrocarbons, has been studied. Discharge operation modes with the solid and liquid cathodes are compared, including the discharge voltage dependences on the distance between the upper flange and the liquid surface. The influence of the water content in a plasma-forming gas on the average energy of plasma electrons is analyzed.

Key words: plasma-liquid system, plasma-catalytic reforming, reverse vortex flow, liquid electrode.
