The paper compares electrostatic precipitator (ESP) performance with pulse and direct current (dc) energization. Pulse power for ESPs has been offered as a possible solution to the problems associated with collecting dust with high electrical resistivity in ESPs. Data have been presented to show a dramatic improvement in ESP performance for pulse vs. dc power supply. In addition to pilot plant tests, EPA participated in a field evaluation of pulse energization of a hot-side ESP. Results of these experiments are discussed in the paper, along with an economic analysis of pulse power.
