The voltage-current characteristics of a plasma arc of variable length a were investigated experimentally under stable-arc operation conditions. The arc was vortex-stabilized and the flow-turbulent. A special flow chamber was added to the generator to control the arc pressure independently of the arc length. Both the cathode and the anode were made of water-cooled copper, and the working gas was air.
