Modelling of Electric Processes in Circuits of Arc Plasma Torches Part 1. Approximations of Static Characteristics of Arc Plasma Torches

Antoni Sawicki

The article discusses selected structural and operational properties of DC and AC arc plasma torches. References cited in the article contain generalised analytical expressions identifying experimental current-voltage characteristics of typical arc plasma torches. Values of coefficients in formulas approximating static current-voltage characteristics depend not only on the type and the polarity of the plasma torch but also on values of criterial factors. The study discusses separately DC plasma torches and single-phase AC plasma torches.
