Abstract—Electrostatic precipitators (ESPs) have become one of the most effective methods for removing harmful particles from various industries. Many investigations in this subject are constantly developing due to the inherent benefits of using an ESP, and there are many robust initiatives taking place today all over the world. Different configurations of collection and discharging electrodes must be investigated to improve the ESP performance of ESPs. Many studies are working to enhance existing models in different ways. The geometry of the electrodes and the collecting plates is one area that could be improved. This paper investigates the wavy designs of collecting electrodes with varied corona electrode radius (range of variable corona radius (0.07-0.6 mm)) and position in a single-stage ESP. Wavy plates (WPs) and Inverted wavy plates (InvWPs) are compared to flat plates (FPs) using a numerical simulation tool. The results of this work show the impact of changing the corona radius when wavy and inverted wavy collecting electrodes are used on the electric potential, electric field strength, current density, and space charge density distribution, and particle collection efficiency. When compared to InvWPs and FPs, WPs show the highest performance in this range of particles. Although InvWPs can be utilized to reduce current density or space charge density, they do not increase particle collection efficiency.
