Ethanol is a kind of renewable fuel, which can be produced from biomass and applied in many energy areas, such as motorcar. The combustion of ethanol in meso-scale faces great challenges, such as much heat loss, poor stability, and low combustion efficiency. Electro-spraying technique is very suitable method to atomize the liquid ethanol due to its great advantage of monodisperse and uniform characteristics. In present study, electro-spraying was applied in liquid meso-scale micro-combustor to produce very small and uniform droplet. Experiments were carried out based on nozzle-ring-plane electrode structure using liquid pure ethanol as fuel. Electro-spraying characteristics were measured by Phase Doppler Anemometer (PDA) under the different nozzle voltages, ring electrode voltages, flow rates, steel mesh positions. The results may give help for the design of new meso-scale electro-spraying combustor using renewable liquid fuel.
