The evolution of high current D.C. arcs on rotating anodes

Reeves-Saunders, Ralph


In this thesis the results of a program of research on the evolution of high current d.c. arcs in air at atmospheric pressure are presented. A technique was developed suitable for the study of high current arc discharges, and in particular of the anode properties of such discharges. The apparatus incorporated an electrode system containing a rotating anode with high precision control and monitoring facilities. Research was carried out in the current range 10 to 1500A for electrode...[Show more]
