Special devices, known as active equalizers, have been developed as one of the methods to control the airplane electrification caused by the loss of charged particles through the engine. The functioning of these equalizers is based on feeding of charges of the opposite sign to the engine exhaust jet. It is in this context that the problem of interaction between oppositely charged jets arises. The need for evaluating interactions between similarly charged jets comes up in designing systems containing multiple equalizers when one must decide on their placement near the exhaust jet. In the present work, using numerical analysis, the interaction effects of two plane charged jets is studied. The performance of two electric charge equalizers, as well as equalizers and aircraft engines is modeled.
