Theoretical and experimental investigations of the working processes in the reverse-vortex plasma assisted combustion system have been conducted. The system operates as a multi-mode, multi-purpose reactor in a wide range of plasma feedstock gases and turn down ratios, convenient and simultaneous feeding of several reagents into the discharge zone. The selected concept of the portable plasma assisted system can provide higher performance, wider turn down ratios, more efficient propellants utilization, demonstrate potential fuel flexibility, and satisfy major gravimetric and volumetric density requirements. The results and recommendations obtained can be used for the modeling of reverse-vortex plasma assisted combustion system operation modes, geometry optimization, prospective propulsion and power generation units design and engineering.
