In the master's thesis, the electrostatic measuring method for determining the characteristics of the pneumatic transport of pulverized coal is discussed. Electrostatic measurement method is based on charge detection of the flowing particles in pneumatic transport. In order to acquire electrostatic charge, intrusive rod–type electrostatic sensor was used. This method enables a real time measurement of volume concentration and velocity of pulverized coal particles. Electrostatic charge of particles is affected by parameters of the pneumatic transport; the velocity and concentration of the particles as well as the electrical properties of the particles. At the laboratory test site, under controlled conditions, we carried out the pneumatic transportation of pulverized coal and investigated the key influential quantities.
