Abstract

A mathematical model for the calculation of the minimum ignition energy (MIE) of the nanosecond-pulsed discharge ignition is presented. The model is based on the kinetic and transport equations for a multicomponent reacting mixture combined with the equations for translational and vibrational temperatures. The analysis of the influence of a pulsewidth, the reduced electric field of the discharge, the energy stored in the vibrational degrees of freedom, and the mixture composition on the MIE is conducted.
