Models for the Simulation of Electrostatic Precipitators
The prime objective of this work is to present models for the prediction of electrostatic collection (precipitation) of fine particulate from industrial flue gases. This technique includes a coupling between fluid flow, electric parameters, and fine particle transport inside electrostatic precipitators [1,2,3]. The final objective is the optimization of the parameters involved in the reactor.
