Experimental investigation of processes of electric arch ac plasma generators operation with different flow rates of plasma forming gases

Energetics. Electrical engineering

The results of experiments with 50Hz AC plasma generators are described. For plasma creation air and carbon dioxide were used. Oscillograms of system “power supply – electric arch plasmatron as load for power supply” were obtained. Dynamic current-voltage characteristic for different plasma forming gases were analyzed. Behavior of arch discharge channel as a load for power supply was described.
