What are the electric stars types? What does the physical nature of an electric sun mean?
This is a good introduction to the subject and gives further topics of research into the theories about electrical plasma stars in an Electric Universe.
A summary of some important EU theory interpretations:
- A red or brown dwarf can be characterised as an independent gas giant type object under low electrical stress from its galactic environment
- A main sequence star is electrically stressed so it resorts to a tufted anode, which regulates the output of the star
- Red giants are normal stars under low electric stress
- White dwarfs are stars with a low luminosity coronal discharge only
You can read more articles about the Electric Stars and the Electric Sun Model and there are some Electric Universe theory books including free EU theory PDF's on the Electric Stars idea.
Electric star categories
The terms giant and dwarf applied to stars are misleading. They are just calculated on the standard model of the sun. The notion of a stars age based on its appearance or spectrum has no validity for the same reason.
Stars on the main sequence may be characterised as self regulating cosmic power transformers, that focus diffuse galactic electrical energy to catalyse fusion in their photosphere to provide radiant energy.
Like the Sun such stars derive their luminosity from very bright anode tufts in their plasma sheaths.
Moving upward diagonally to the right the current density increases. Anode tufting becomes more crowded and their mutual repulsion forces the photosphere to grow to accommodate them.
At the top right of the main sequence the light from those tufts is electric blue of a true arc and the stars appear as blue giants - intensely hot objects appearing considerably larger than our sun. As you might expect blue giants tend to be concentrated on the central axis of our galaxies spiral arm discharges.
Red stars must collect more electrons than the plasma can deliver continually to its surface. So bright anode tufts are unnecessary, the anode expands instead by forming a negative space charge sheath, and as that sheath expands its electric field grows stronger.
Electrons caught up in the field are accelerated to ever greater energies and before long they become energetic enough to excite neutral particles they collide with in the outer sheath to take on a uniform red glow.
A white dwarf is a star whose discharge current is satisfied by all the approaching electrons, drift electrons plus those that randomly move towards the anode. it has no anode tufting. It is rather like moving a low energy corona of a main sequence star down into the atmosphere of the white dwarf star. That is why the dim star Sirius B is brighter in x-rays than Sirius A because the corona emits x-rays.
