Theoretical Calculation of Lift Force for General Electric Asymmetric Capacitor Loaded by High Voltage
Abstract: Lift force of an asymmetric capacitor in arbitrary shape still cannot be precisely calculated. For an irregular surface of a general asymmetric capacitor of which electric charge is nonuniformly distributed, we dedicate effort to filling the gap of lift force calculation problem. Through theoretical derivation, a general formula result is achieved. By applying theoretical formula combining with experimental method based on similarity principle of dimensional analysis, we can almost figure out all types of lift force of asymmetric capacitor. It is really an exciting method which can universally solve the hard thrust force calculation problem completely.
