    I am a MSc student in chemical engineering ( so i feel like fish in the wrong place XD). My thesis project concerns the study of a technology called Wet electrostatic scrubber in order to remove the particulate. In these weeks i would like to use LTSPICE for simulate the electrical circuit (i attached the image that schematize my sperimental apparatus). I don't know how represent the faraday cage, ring electrode and nozzle. Probably i can represent the sheet of water that flows out the nozzle and the ring as a capacitor but i don't know how represent the faraday cage. During the test i apply a voltage from 0kV to 20 Kv and the water is charged through induction.

    Someone can help me?
    Thank you in advance

    You need a simulator that does 3-dimentional field vectors. Spice won't help you.

    Does Faraday cage = Faraday cup?

    And does the particulate that you are trying to separate, have charge? And if so, what polarity?

    And what structure is the particulate collected?

    Ok guys, maybe the question is too complicate for explain it in easy way.

    So i have a more easy question

    If i give a voltage to an iron ring and it is among the nozzle (iron) and the faraday cup can i schematize them as two capacitor in series where iron ring is a plate of both capacitor?
