Partnership request description:  FP7 - AAT - 2012 - RTD-1; AAT.2012.1.1-3 Propulsion: Nitrogen oxide (NOx) as a fuel combustion product is the most dangerous compound for environment. All existing methods of NOx emission reduction are based on prevention of NOx generation by maximal temperature of primal combustion zone limitation. As a result, air-fuel flame temperature and respective gas-turbine engine power are sufficiently decreased. Our University has 30-years experience in combustion processes modelling and gas-turbine engines development. We propose to generate high frequency transient electromagnetic fields in working parts of exhausting nozzles for NOx molecules electron bonds resonance excitation up to dissociation. After decomposition and recombination reactions, molecular nitrogen and oxygen replace NOx into the exhausting gas mixtures. Proposed technology provides: ? - extremely efficient (up to 99.95%) decomposition of existing NOx molecules regardless of its initial concentration without any consumable materials; ? - engine power increasing (up to 20 – 50%) because of process independence on effective flame temperature; - engine fuel consumption reduction on 3 – 5%; - significantly less estimated cost of electromagnetic NOx purification. For successful commercial application of proposed approach accumulated in our University knowledge on resonance effect of electron bond exciting by external electromagnetic field has to be supplemented with the following research results: ? 1) experimental study of kinetic/electromagnetic exciting and decomposition mechanism of nitrogen – oxygen bond in different NOx molecules; ? 2) multichannel adjustment of transient electromagnetic fields; ? 3) prevention of atomic oxygen and other side products creation. As a result of the project, advanced design of gas-turbine engine combustion chamber equipped with electromagnetic field generator will be developed and tested with special attention to materials selection and processes reliability, as well as feasible NOx emissions reduction will be evaluated.
