A numerical model that determines the electrical characteristics of a bell-type electrostatic painting system is presented. The model is capable of handling the complex geometries of practical sprayers and accounts for the space-charge effect of charged paint droplets. The influence of aerodynamic forces in tracing droplet trajectories is considered. As a test of the simulation approach, the restricted case of a sprayer emitting ions, rather than charged paint droplets, was modeled. The… CONTINUE READING
