Abstract—A set of procedures for the design of microwave based non-thermal plasma reactor for the abatement of NOx and SOx from marine exhaust gas is presented in this paper. The design is supported by finite element based analysis developed in COMSOL multi-physics environment. The proposed design suggests that use of rightly chosen slots arrangements for the insertion of microwave energy into the multi-mode cavity can increase the supplied dosage of microwave energy to the gas.
Index Terms—Non-thermal plasma, marine diesel exhausts gas abatement, microwave plasma reactors.
