The article proposes a method to calculate both the space charge and the operating point of electrostatic precipitators (ESPs). In ESPs, there is a strong interaction between the particulate space charge and the operating voltage and current of an electrical section. Calculating either when the other is fixed is not difficult, but calculating both self-consistently is much more difficult. An iterative solution is required, but the closure rate should be acceptable.
