Electrical Propulsion Device with Improved Propulsion Force Using Electrostatic and Flame Jet Ehd Power Generation

Authors: Taku Saiki

A principle for the propulsion system that uses electrostatic and flame jet EHD power generation which has been greatly improved in propulsion force had been shown, and an experimental result had been also shown as one example. Electro hydro dynamic (EHD) and electrostatic propulsion devices were developed in the 1920s by Thomas Townsend Brown. One such device, has no moving parts and, in the air, operates on electrical energy. In addition to the conventional electrostatic and EHD propulsion unit, a weakly ionized plasma column (flame jet) is installed at the center in the device to improve the propulsion force. Voltage was amplified by flame jet inside the center column and boosted to close to 200 kV.
