The characteristics of a multistage electrohydrodynamic converter (EHDC) have been studied, and the results are presented in this paper. The diagram of an experimental installation is described; the pressure head, flow rate, and current characteristics are provided as a function of time and the EHDC supply voltage. The factors determining the EHDC parameters and the methods of their regeneration are determined.
