DC Glow Discharge, 1D

DC glow discharges in the low-pressure regime have long been used for gas lasers and fluorescent lamps. DC discharges are attractive to study because the solution is time independent. The 1D and 2D models show how to use the DC Discharge interface to set up an analysis of a positive ... Read More

DC Corona Discharge in a Point-to-Plane Configuration

This tutorial model presents a study of a negative corona discharge in dry air at atmospheric pressure in a point-to-plane configuration. An elliptical electrode with millimeter dimensions creates a high intensity electric field where the corona discharge occurs. A ground plane is placed ... Read More

Electrostatic Precipitator

This model computes the fluid flow, charge transport and electric potential in an electrostatic precipitator. Based on the resulting fields, particles of different diameter are fed into the device and the transmission probability is computed. As expected, the separation efficiency shows ... Read More

Plasma Pulsed Arc

This tutorial model demonstrates how to use the Combined Inductively/DC Discharge interface to simulate the plasma generated in a pulsed arc. This modeling technique is useful for a large range of industrial applications including cutting, welding, spraying, waste destruction, and ... Read More

Dielectric Barrier Discharge

This model simulates electrical breakdown in an atmospheric pressure gas. Modeling dielectric barrier discharges in more than one dimension is possible, but the results can be difficult to interpret because of the amount of competing physics in the problem. In this simple model the ... Read More

Electrical Breakdown Between Spheres

This model verifies that the onset of streamer formation between two spheres separated by atmospheric pressure dry air at a distance of 2cm occurs at 51.8kV. The electrical breakdown is detected by integrating Townsend coefficients along the electric field lines between the two spheres. ... Read More

Plasma DC Arc

This example investigates the electrical and thermal characteristics of a plasma DC arc created in a point-to-plane configuration. The discharge is assumed to be in local thermodynamic equilibrium. The plasma is considered a conductive fluid medium and is modeled using a ... Read More

Atmospheric Pressure Corona Discharge in Air

This tutorial model presents a study of a coaxial DC corona discharge in dry air at atmospheric pressure. The dimensions and operation conditions are similar to ones found in electrostatic precipitators with wire-to-plate configurations. The inner wire electrode has a 100-mm radius and ... Read More

Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) Torch

This model investigates the electrical and thermal characteristics of an inductively coupled plasma torch at atmospheric pressure. The discharge is assumed to be in local thermodynamic equilibrium. Read More

3D ICP Reactor, Argon Chemistry

3D plasma modeling is possible to do in COMSOL. A square coil is placed on top of a dielectric window and is electrically excited at 13.56MHz. A plasma is formed in the chamber beneath the dielectric window, which contains Argon gas at low pressure (20 mtorr). The gas flows into the ... Read More
