Abstract : A multistage EHD generator with parallel cutputs to produce a usable output current. A single injector injects particles or droplets into a fluid flow which traverses a plurality of EHD generator stages in series. At each generator stage there is a means for charging the particles and a means for neutralizing the particles. The outputs between the charging and neutralizing means and connected in parallel to provide a substantial electrical power output.
