Abstract

The excitation equilibrium of Fe xxv in the solar corona for electron power distributions is presented. A parametric form of the distribution function is used to demonstrate the changes in the excitation equilibrium due to the shape of the distribution. A pseudo-temperature is used for better understanding of the changes in the excitation equilibrium. The Fe xxv line intensities depend on the shape of the electron distribution and unusual Fe line ratios can be observed for non-thermal distribution. The results can be used in specific applications in the solar corona, especially in diagnostics of the impulsive phase of solar flares, where the deviations from the Maxwellian distribution can be large.
