High Temperature-High Pressure Effect on Performance of an Electrostatic precipitator


journal of kerbala university, Volume 3, Issue 4, Pages 84-92

This paper presents a finite difference numerical model to calculate the effect of high temperature-high pressure on V-I curves for negative corona discharge of an electrostatic precipitator . The simultaneous solution for the governing Poisson's and current continuity equations helps in predicting the voltage –current characteristics of precipitator ,the results at atmospheric conditions are considered as a reference. Electrical characteristics were evaluated for an operating of (1,2,3and 4bar)pressures and temperatures (293,400,500,600 and 700 K).The numerical results are compared with experimental data from the literature, and the agreement is excellent.
