Gasdynamic control of arc motion
It is shown experimentally that by modifying the gas flow field in the inner electrode of a vortical plasmotron, it is possible to improve the efficiency of electromagnetic scanning of the arc and diminish the erosion of the electrode. The prospects of gasdynamic scanning for creating a plasmotron with a long service life is discussed.
