Abstract:

Energy conditions were investigated which determined the generation of plasma on account of graphite anode erosion in an Ar atm. Arc current was 500-540 amp. Integral radiation of individual discharge paths and arc and anode column temps. were measured. The efficiency was 2.7-3 percent. Author
