Application ID: 71361
This model computes the fluid flow, charge transport and electric potential in an electrostatic precipitator. Based on the resulting fields, particles of different diameter are fed into the device and the transmission probability is computed. As expected, the separation efficiency shows a minimum when the particle radius is around 0.2 microns.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
