The mechanism of gas movement in the electric wind is considered herein, and an approximate theory presented which relates relevant electrical and aerodynamic quantities. Among others, these relationships are shown to hold for an electrostatic blower, operating on the electric-wind principle: Gas velocity is a linear function of voltage and is proportional to the square root of current; if the density of the gas is not too low, the efficiency of electrokinetic conversion near sparkover is… CONTINUE READING
