In recent years, AC electric field has been introduced as a new approach for sorting, separation, exact feeding and transportation of particles in manufacturing process. The capability of particle handling demands more studies to recognize parameters influencing linear velocity of particles. In this study, the effects of parameters including frequency, gap between electrodes, electrode width, and signal profile on particle linear velocity in a selected condition were experimentally investigated. Main effects of factors and interactions were considered in this paper and regression equation was derived. A general full factorial method was employed as experimental design.
