This paper deals with consideration of particle motion control and its trapping in the deactivation of foreign contaminating moving particle in simulated GIS. The particle motion behavior in non-uniform field gap without/with different shaped spacers was investigated experimentally under dc and 60 Hz ac voltages. The obtained results were confirmed experimentally as well as by calculating the electrostatic force acting on the particle in the non-uniform field gap and are reported elsewhere. Whereas, in this paper, the observed particle motion behavior around simple shaped spacer is simulated by solving the particle motion equations analytically in the presence of electrical gradient and image forces. The simulation agreed fairly well with the experimental results. Furthermore, in the non-uniform electric field, the effect of dielectric coating on the grounded electrode on the particle motion and particle deactivation is also briefly discussed. On the basis of the obtained results of particle motion behavior without/with different shaped spacers and the effect of dielectric coating on the ground electrode, different methods of particle deactivation are suggested as well as confirmed experimentally.
