PROJECT TITLE :
Electrically Enhanced Condensation I: Effects of Corona Discharge
The effect of a corona discharge in the steam on the rate of nucleation and condensation of a liquid section is theoretically and experimentally investigated by means that of implementation with a steam condenser for an improved section-amendment rate. The phenomena considered embrace the nucleation of water vapor on mobile charge carriers, the electrohydrodynamic vapor flow toward the condenser wall, and the thermodynamics of the charged microdroplet. The dielectrophoretic interaction of droplets and vapor is presented in terms of further potential that adds to the evaporation energy barrier on the surface of the droplets. Experimental results obtained on the impact of a corona discharge ensure a 16% improvement in the condensation rate.
