## Thank you

Although the initial investigators, such as Lodge (1886), employed an electrostatic generator such as a Wimshurst Machine successfully to demonstrate the precipitation phenomenon, once the development was applied in the field, it became apparent that more electrical power, in terms of current, was necessary to ensure satisfactory particle charging such that the particles could be continuously precipitated. More correctly the process should be referred to as electrical precipitation, because with modern installations one can find rectifier equipment having outputs up to 200 kW and for large power station applications a power consumption up to 2 MW.
