Electro Static Precipitator Problem
Query regarding ESP in power plant

Dear all,

I have query regarding ESP in power plant.

As per above mentioned subject that we are facing the problem in electro static precipitator. Like if we applied mA at first field, it's generate Kv, but immediately happened fluctuations in mA &Kv @ adjacent esp field. So it's query behalf me to all members what would be reason behind it.

Sounds like the onset of insulator break down or dirty insulators that allow bridging to ground.

1. disconnect from the precipitator, and power up. If you see the same problem, then it is in the power supply or cables.

2. precips require regular clean outs.

you can track it down, but be safe.

Good luck...
