Abstract

We present the experimental results of an energy conversion system based on a rotary atomizer and the streaming current phenomenon. The advantage of using a rotary atomizer instead of a channel or membrane micropore as in conventional pressure-driven approached is that the centrifugal force exerted on the fluid on a smooth and large surface will avoid clogging. Here we successfully obtain a high output power up to 1.7 miliwatts. This to our knowledge is the first time electrical power is generated in a rotary atomizer system.
