The article deals with the design of the diameter and the simulation of the distribution of the intensity of the electric field of the charging electrode of the electrostatic precipitator, given the supplied DC voltage. The purpose was to calculate the value of the critical intensity of the electric field, which must be exceeded when trying to achieve the state of corona discharge on the electrode, which is a condition for electrostatic separation. Subsequently, CFD simulations of two 3D models with electrode diameters of 1 and 4 mm were created, on which the distributions of the electric field intensity were observed at a DC voltage of 20 kV. The simulations confirmed the results of the calculations that the corona discharge at a voltage of 20 kV will occur only on an electrode with a diameter of 1 mm.
