Description

We present numerical simulations on a release of spiral waves pinned to an unexcitable circular obstacle in a two-dimensional excitable medium using the Oregonator model. For a given obstacle, a constant electric field with amplitude stronger than a critical value Eunpin causes a pinned spiral wave to drift away from the obstacle. Our results show that the energy applied to unpin the spiral wave can be reduced by using a time varying electric field. For an on-off formed electric field with Eunpin and an appropriate on-off period, the applied energy is decreased to 35% of constant electric field.
