The microcomputer program ESPVI 4.0 was developed to provide a user-friendly interface to an advanced model of electrostatic precipitation (ESP) performance. The program is capable of modeling standard ESP configurations as well as those that might be proposed for improved performance. It incorporates many of the latest developments in prediction of ESP performance, including electrical waveform effects, non-rapping reentrainment, and electrode misalignment. The program is organized by a series of menu screens with increasing levels of detail provided as the menus become more specific. The user's manual provides the documentation needed to load the program from its disk, set up the computer configuration for optimal operation, and introduces the operation of the program. The user is expected to be familiar with the operation of an ESP and know the important factors that affect it. An example ESP is provided with the program to help with the manual's exposition. It is taken from a report describing measurement of the unit's performance and so provides a direct comparison of the models predictions.
