    In a movie, the hero creates an electric spark that ignites a chain reaction, leading to a plot twist. In the audience, we view this unfolding sequence as if it could actually happen. The special effects hold our attention and engage our emotions. We overlook inconsistencies that might disconnect us from the storytelling. View full abstract»

    This paper discussed the development and detailing history of applied electrostatics which give advantages and disadvantages. Most electrical engineers, the term electrostatics brings to mind some hazy visions of early electrical experimentation involving an ancient Greek, a dead cat, and a piece of amber. Many of us recreated this quaint demonstration of triboelectric charging and its subsequent ... View full abstract»

    In order to support human and robotic explorations of Mars and beyond,the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has undertaken lunar missions. One technological problem is the mitigation of dust hazards associated with both lunar and Mars missions. There are many factors that transformed lunar regolith into an ocean dust like volcanic eruption, meteorite impact, solar radiation and ... View full abstract»

    The aim of this article is to point out the characteristics of Shewhart and CUSUM charts when applied to electrostatic separation processes and validate their ability to detect special events that may be indicators of out-of-control situations. This article also shows how the effectiveness of statistical process control (SPC) can be improved by using the cumulative sum (CUSUM) chart. Experiments w... View full abstract»

    Enhancing precipitation efficiency using conventional and fuzzy logic control. Modern high-voltage (HV) power supplies based on fast switching devices such as insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) increases the performance of the corona power of electrostatic precipitators (ESPs), resulting in improved gas cleaning and higher performance of the ESP. Unfortunately, increased energy consumption... View full abstract»

    This paper is devoted to the application of pulsed power technology to biotechnology, which includes processing of fruit juices, beverages, and dairy products. Pulsed power refers to the technology where a steady accumulation of energy followed by its rapid release results in the delivery of a large amount of instantaneous power over a very short period of time. By releasing the stored energy over... View full abstract»

    This paper is devoted to the Kelvin probe technique which is noncontacting method for the quantitative evaluation of an electric field, surface potential, and surface charge distribution. It does not change the physical state of the object under test. Lack of contact with the measured object assures that there is no charge transfer between the meter and the tested surface.

    A giant magnetoresistive (GMR) head in tape-recording systems is affected by the electrostatic discharge (ESD) between the sensor and magnetic shields. Hence, Pt-doped Al2O3 was developed as a dissipative gap material to reduce the ESD current. Pt chips were sputtered on an alumina target to vary the film resistance. The decay time of a charged plate on Pt-doped Al... View full abstract»
