Electrical supply unit for cold plasma sources

Based on the principle described in "O. S. Stoican, Electrical Supply Circuit for a Cold Plasma Source at Atmospheric Pressure Based on a Voltage Multiplier, Polymers, 13, 2132 (2021)" an experimental model for a stand-alone system aimed to drive cold plasma sources has been developed.
Its operation is equivalent to two dc sources connected in parallel, used to initiate and sustain the electrical discharge, depending on its state.

The main features of the system are:
The whole design of the system are based on the usual components, electronic boards and materials, commercially available, being ready to be implemented as a product by an innovative start-up.
