Despite of the increase in the renewable energy sources, combustion of fossil fuels remains the main energy resource, and it will continue in the future in order to meet the increase in the global energy demand. However, due to their impact on the environment, regulations on carbon dioxide and pollutant emissions become more strict. As a containment, scientists are working toward fuel-lean combustion to meet these strict regulations. The main challenge of the fuel-lean combustion is its poor stability, thus new technologies are required to achieve a reliable combustion system. In this study, the use of nanosecond-pulsed repetitive plasma discharge is examined as a potential method to achieve a more stable premixed combustion system.
