Electric Plasma Jet Engine – A Clean Aircraft Propulsion Power Plant

Comfort Ezichi Chiadikaobi


Electric plasma jet engines was defined and its necessary components explain. It was found out that simple experiments can be conducted in a laboratory to experience the behavior of plasma jet engine. Furthermore, it was clearly stated that though plasma jet engines can provide sufficient thrust just as a fossil fuel-based jet engine, it is a lot safer, clean and cheap and more reliable to run a jet engine on plasma. Recommendation was also made on further research especially in the area of temperature, where plasma engine jet engine temperature need to be dropped.
