We describe the installation and method for a study of the transfer of heat in the near-electrode region of an intensively swept electric arc. We present the experimental data demonstrating the relationship between the heat removed from the cathode spot and the current strength for an air flow rate of 6.6 g/sec (the air supplied to the plasmotron chamber) and with an external magnetic field exhibiting a strength of 850 Oe.
