Abstract: a b s t r a c tA nanosecond pulsed plasma discharge located between two fuel jets is used to ignite and hold jet flames in supersonic crossflows, without the use of additional devices (e.g., cavities or backsteps) for flame holding. The fuel injection nozzles and discharge electrodes are mounted flush with the surface of the flat wall adjacent to the freestream flow. The nonequilibrium plasma is produced by repetitive pulses of 15 kV peak voltage, 10 ns pulse width and 50 kHz repetition rate. Sonic or subsoni…
