Paper Title:
Comparative Analysis of Electric Field Measurement in Zaria
  Abstract

This paper presents the comparative analysis of the measurement of static electric field within and outside the test location in Zaria, Nigeria, based on the measurement carried out using a data acquisition system, interfaced with a digital electrostatic field strength meter (model 257D). The acquired electric field data are captured by a computer using the Microsoft Office Excel Program. The focus of the analysis is determining the effect of environmental factors such as temperature, pressure and relative humidity on the static electric field during the harmattan (March) and non-harmattan period (April – May). The plots of the average electric field against the variation of the environmental factors were used as the qualitative analytical tools and conclusion was drawn to the fact that the relative variation in the measurement of the electric field within and outside the test location is averagely 0.06KV/cm and dependent on the environmental factors.
