This paper mainly focuses on reliable ignition and flame stabilization of low-BTU gas fuels with non-equilibrium air plasma assist. The results of experimental and numerical analyses indicated that the flame propagation speed was increased while the ignition time was decreased by the effect of non-equilibrium air plasma. Active radicals observed in air plasma made great efforts to the generation of OH radical which can accelerate the fuel oxidation process greatly.
