Reverse currents in a unipolar arc

  • P. M. Shvartsberg
  • P. D. Korzh


The conditions of transition from a unipolar ac arc to a bipolar arc were studied. The observed relationships are explained on the basis of the thermal theory of arcs. The use of a unipolar double arc for achieving strict unipolar operation is suggested.
