Title (EN) SYSTEM, CIRCUIT, AND METHOD FOR CONTROLLING COMBUSTION
(FR) SYSTÈME, CIRCUIT ET PROCÉDÉ PERMETTANT DE RÉGULER LA COMBUSTION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A system, circuit, and method are provided for generating continuous plasma to control combustion including the ignition and maintenance of the combustion process. An electric potential difference is generated across a pair of electrodes in a combustible bulk gas in the form of an oscillating driving potential just below the arcing threshold which alternates in polarity to cause an alternating gap current between the electrodes which generates continuous plasma to contribute to combustion of the bulk gas by providing for more efficient combustion.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un système, un circuit et un procédé qui permettent de produire un plasma continu destiné à réguler la combustion, y compris l'allumage et l'entretien du processus de combustion. Selon l'invention, il se produit une différence de potentiel électrique aux bornes de deux électrodes dans un gaz combustible en vrac, sous la forme d'un potentiel d'excitation oscillant juste inférieur au seuil de production d'arc électrique, dont la polarité change de sorte qu'il se crée entre les électrodes un courant alternatif entraînant la production d'un plasma continu qui facilite la combustion du gaz en vrac et en améliore l'efficacité.
