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:

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

Where:

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

The pressure drop over the precipitator is measured by:

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