This tape contains the source code (FORTRAN) for Revision 3 of the Mathematical Model of Electrostatic Precipitation. Improvements found in Revision 3 of the model include a new method of calculating the solutions to the electric field equations, a dynamic method for calculating effluent opacity, and a routine which checks the input data. Revision 3 of the model performs efficiency calculations in approximately 10% of the time required by Revision 1. Revision 3 provides options to use input data expressed entirely in the metric system, to terminate the calculation after the calculation of V-I curves, and to use an internal data set to estimate precipitator efficiency based on the resistivity of the collected dust...Software Description: The program is written in the FORTRAN programming language for implementation on a Digital Equipment Corp. 2020 computer using the TOPS-20 operating system. 253K bytes of core storage are required to operate the model.
