The report describes modifications to the EPA/Southern Research Institute computer model of electrostatic precipitation (ESP). The modifications include a new semi-empirical approximation procedure for predicting electrical conditions in an ESP. Comparisons between the results from the approximation procedure and more exact procedures are presented. A new integration procedure for calculating particle charge is also presented. Complete Fortran listings of the revised ESP model and the new subprograms are provided. Example problems are included. The modified model requires significantly less computer time than does the earlier model. Comparisons of results obtained using the earlier and the modified models over a wide range of possible ESP geometries and electrical operating points indicate that for practical purposes the modified model can be used in place of the more rigorous earlier model.
