Electro-Static Precipitator

Under construction.


The following performance calculations are applied to all ESP instances.

Collection Efficiency   .efficiency.use

The collection plate efficiency (Handbook of Complex Environmental Remediation Problems, Chapter 3.6.4) is defined as:

$$\eta = 1 - e^{\frac{-w_{p}A}{Q_{g}}}$$

Where: * $\eta$ = Collection efficiency for a flat-plate, turbulent-flow ESP * $w_{p}$ = Particle migration velocity * $A$ = $2_{n}LH$ = total collection area for the particles

  • $_{n}$ = Number of channels
  • $L$ = Length of the collection electrode
  • $H$ = Height of the collection electrode
  • $Q_{g}$ = Volumetric flow rate of the gas

In CAS terms:

$$ep.efficiency.use = 1 - e^{a}$$


$$a = \frac{- \ ep.efficiency.use \times ep.area.use}{ep.c1in.volFlow.use}$$

The pressure drop over the precipitator is measured by:

$$ep.c1.dP.use = ep.c1in.prop.pres.use - ep.c1out.prop.press.use$$
