ESP School

Wrocław, Poland, 19-20 September 2016, Wrocław University of Science and Technology

Note: The deadline for the registration of participants for the ESP School will expire on 24 June 2016. After this date no registrations will be accepted.


The International Society for Electrostatic Precipitation (ISESP) has functioned effectively to provide a forum to exchange information on all phases of Electrostatic Precipitation (ESP) technology. The ISESP aims at sharing the ESP knowledge and technology through organizing international conferences for exchange of information on theory and application of electrostatic precipitators. The first International Conference on Electrostatic Precipitation (ICESP) organized by the ISESP was held in Monterey, California, USA, in October 1981. The success of the First Conference suggested next conferences which were held in Kyoto, Albano Therme, Beijing, Washington, Budapest, Kyongju, Birmingham, Mpumalanga, Cairns, Hangzhou, and Nurenberg. The XIII ICESP was held in Bangalore, India in 2013. For the first time in the history of ICESP, the organizers of XIII ICESP conceived aconcept of holding a school as part of the Conference for providing basic knowledge and advancements in the field of electrostatic precipitators  and fabric filters. The concept came true and eight ESP tutorial lectures from experts in the field covering subjects of Fundamentals including Particulate Generation and Collection Principles, ESP Design and Industrial Applications, Chemistry of Fly Ash and Coal Properties and its Impact on ESP Performance with Focus on Power Plants, HV Power Supplies and Electrical Operation, ESP Operation and Troubleshooting, Combination of ESP and Bag Filters, Current Trends /Research – Part I and Part II were delivered to about 20 participants from abroad and 70 participants from India. The ESP School tutorial lectures were highly interactive with questions during each presentation being answered by the respective expert speakers.

The next, XIV ICESP will be held in Wrocław, Poland in 2016. Following the success of the ESP School the II ESP School will be organized as a part of the XIV ICESP to disseminate basic knowledge and enhance performance level of Precipitation. The II ESP School is primarily targeted at young engineers, users and researchers in ESP fields.

Eight tutorials will be delivered by the international renowned experts. The tutorials covered a broad spectrum of ESP subjects: Industrial Application of Static Electricity, ESP Fundamentals – Definitions, Input Parameters, Reference Conditions, Chemistry, ESP Design and Industrial Application, ESP Energization and Electrical Operation, Mercury Removal in Electrostatic Precipitators, EHD Phenomena in Electrostatic Precipitators, ESP Operation and Troubleshooting, and PM2.5 Emission Control. This will satisfy those who are interested in the fundamentals as well as in the state of the art of current topics related to the Electrostatic Precipitation.
