PLASIMO demo version

In order to evaluate the capabilities of PLASIMO a version with slightly limited capabilities can be provided on request. This evaluation version should give you a good impression of what can be done with PLASIMO. It is limited in the sense that it does not contain the full PLASIMO database, lacks parallel support, and does not save any output to disk.

User guide

The user guide contains the main documentation for PLASIMO. In it you can find how to start PLASIMO, and how to use the Graphical User Interface. Additionally, the models in the demosuite are described in detail. You can also find recipes to set up models from scratch.

Abstract: In this work an extensive chemical model is presented for a CO2 plasma that is relevant for the production of `solar fuels'. It consists of 72 species and 5732 reactions. It is based on species definitions and reaction rate coefficients from previous literature, which have been rigorously reviewed, and is augmented with reaction rate coefficients that are obtained from the application of scaling laws. The input data set, which is suitable for usage with the plasma simulation software PLASIMO has been made available in human-readable electronic form on the publisher's website. The correctness of this implementation of the model has been established by realizing an independent ZDPlasKin - compatible implementation setting up equivalent physical models and verifying that the results agree. Results of these `global models' are presented for a typical case study, a cylindrical DBD plasma reactor with pulsed power input.

Description: You can download the files and data used in this paper. The files CO2_model.gum and CO2_chemistry.gum in the models directory are the files that are used for the paper. You will also find the files CO2_model_v2.gum and CO2_chemistry_v2.gum in the same directory. These contain fixes for mistakes in the application of scaling laws that were kindly brought to our attention by Vladislav Kotov of the Forschungszentrum J├╝lich GmbH, IEK-4. We recommend to use these v2 files. The old versions are kept for those who wish to reproduce the results from the published paper. Both archives contain only human-readable text files and unpack to a subdirectory koelman2016.
If you wish to use these data with your copy of the PLASIMO plasma modelling toolkit, please unpack the archive relative to the input directory of your PLASIMO installation.
