The paper proposes a design and implementation of Van de Graaff generator whose output voltage is 80.28 KV. To calculate the generated output voltage we have use the sphere gap method. A Van de Graaff generator is an electrostatic generator as it works on a principle of electrostatics. A Van de Graaff generator is used to generate a high DC voltage. It was first developed by Robert Jemison Van de Graaff in 1929, in USA and carries his name along 1931. This generator uses a moving belt to build up very high voltages on a hollow metal globe which is located on top of the generator. The potential difference that is developed in modern Van de Graaff generator reach about 5 megavolts. A Van de Graaff generator that we design and built that is intended to be used in schools and colleges for teaching the basics principles of Electrostatics and Electromagnetics as well as many other applications. Nowadays many schools and colleges laboratories and many museums use this type of generators for electrostatics demonstrations.
