Abstract: The research work in this paper is based on generation of high voltage pulses using compact power supply sources for abatement of NOX from the diesel engine exhaust. The high voltage source is made up of zero voltage switch cascaded with flyback converter to produce high voltage AC, a Cockroft-Walton voltage multiplier to generate high voltage DC and a rotary spark gap for the production of high voltage pulses of rise time in the range of nano seconds. The rectifier based power supply is validated by a 12 V battery supply. To corroborate the feasibility of proposed methodology in diesel operated vehicles, the experiments are conducted with a 12 V battery. Performance of various shapes of electrodes (cylindrical 5mm diameter, square 5 mm diagonal and hexagonal with vertex to vertex diameter of 5 mm) at different flow rates of 2 l/min, 4 l/min and 6 l/min are also examined. � 1994-2012 IEEE.
