Abstract
Numerical study of dielectric barrier discharge of CH4/air mixture were carried out by employing a coaxial cylindrical electrode with diameter of 10mm under the condition of the discharge voltage of 6000V. The influence of electrode structure parameter and equivalence ratio on electron density were analyzed. The result shows that the electron density which increases with the decrease of the distance from the cathode has a quick increase at the small position near the cathode (0.05~0.4mm), and the maximum value of electron density appears at the position of 0.1mm. The electron density has no obvious change with the equivalence ratio, it is benefit to the lean combustion of natural gas application.
