Numerical Simulation of the Electrohydrodynamic Flow in a Single Wire-Plate Electrostatic Precipitator

  title={Numerical Simulation of the Electrohydrodynamic Flow in a Single Wire-Plate Electrostatic Precipitator},
  author={Lin Zhao and Kazimierz Adamiak},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications},
In this paper, the electrohydrodynamic (EHD) flow in a single wire-plate electrostatic precipitator has been analyzed numerically by employing a hybrid Finite-Element Method-Method of Characteristics numerical algorithm and the commercial computational fluid dynamic software FLUENT6.2. Parameters defining both the electric and the flow fields were predicted. The interaction between the electric and the flow fields has been discussed by adopting the proposed two-way coupling algorithm. With the… CONTINUE READING
