The action is similar to that of a Van de Graaff generator, but higher power density can be obtained.
A Van de Graaff generator is a type of electrostatic generator used to build up static electrical charge of very high voltages by transferring electric charge from a power supply to a spherical metal terminal.
A high-voltage source transfers an electric charge to a nonconducting conveyor belt, usually made of silk or rubber, which continuously redeposits the charge on the insulated metal terminal, where it accumulates.
Even small Van de Graaff generators can accumulate a static charge of 100,000 volts; the largest, up to ten million volts.
