Triboelectrification of a Metal by Repeated Impacts on A Dielectric Film : Analytical and Numerical Study

Authors(1) :-SeongMin Kim

Theoretically, the impact triboelectrification between metal and dielectric films has been studied. We analyze the  relationship for the contact mode TENG at the impacts to investigate how the charge moves in the short-circuit state. The total charge of triboelectricity due to a number of impacts is analytically derived under short circuit conditions, taking into account the initial charge and the time-dependent charge relaxation.
