Abstract

     In this work, one configuration was used to study the electrical discharge resulting from the dielectric barrier. This configuration consists of a sheet of epoxy/Al composite with dimensions of 75 mm in length, 25 mm in width, and 3 mm in thickness. This panel is located at the center of the electrodes, so that the distance between each of the electrodes and the plate is 2 mm and plasma is generated at these distances. The relationship between voltage and current with changing the frequency of the equipment as well as changing the area of ​​exposure to the upper electrode or changing its length has been studied. The length of the top electrode varies at 0, 10, 20, 30, and 40 mm from the center of the electrodes producing exposure areas of 1875, 1625, 1375, 1125, 875, and 625 mm2, respectively. Two frequencies of 8 and 9 kHz were applied in this work. The results showed that the discharge current increases linearly with the applied input voltage and with the decrease of the exposure of the upper electrode. Then, the current increases with the stability of the voltage in varying proportions depending on the exposure area and frequency. The plasma generated from this modulation was diagnosed with the exposure area and the fitted frequency. Electron temperature and electron density are calculated using the optical emission spectroscopy technique by Boltzmann and Lorenz, respectively. It can be seen that the temperature, electron density, and plasma frequency increase with the decrease of the exposure area, while the Debye length shows the opposite behavior and this is clear in this formation and high effectiveness at Diagnosis and Reason This formation will be adopted in the surface treatment of the aluminum epoxy compound.
