Time Dependent Modelling and Simulation of the Corona Discharge in Electrostatic Precipitators
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Corona discharge is one of the crucial problems related with high-voltage equipment. This paper focuses on the physical and numerical modelling of corona discharge in an Electrostatic precipitator (ESP). The model is based on Maxwells equations and the Finite element method (FEM) and is implemented with the COMSOL Multiphysics software.The simulation allows studying the electric charge distribution and the behaviour of the electric field inside the ESP. The work is focused primarily on time-dependent studies of the corona discharge.
