Flow Distribution inside an Electrostatic Precipitator: Effects of Uniform and Variable Porosity of Perforated Plate


This paper presents a numerical flow model applied to a 3D geometry of an electrostatic precipitator (ESP). The flow simulation is performed by using the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code FLUENT. Realizable k-ε model for turbulence condition inside the ESP is applied. In the simulation, the perforated plates are modeled as thin porous media of finite… (More)
