The Working Principle of the Lifter in Air

Zoltan Losonc
Year: 2006
Keywords: ion wind, lifters, space charge
The lifter phenomenon is explained entirely I terms of known forces. Lifters are essentially asymmetrical capacitors. Charges leak off the wires of these devices more rapidly than they leave the strips, creating an asymmetrical space charge. A quantitative analysis should therefore show that lift is attributable to unbalanced electrostatic pressures.
